Giordano Dance to Perform 21st Century Profram at Auditorium Theatre

The Auditorium Theatre (50 E. Ida B. Wells Drive) will complete its popular Made in Chicago 2021-22 Dance Series with the return of Giordano Dance Chicago (GDC) performing its annual summer engagement for one night only, Saturday, June 11.  Audiences can expect a sizzling mixed repertory program of six works showcasing the company’s continual expansion of the boundaries of jazz and contemporary dance. All works on the program debuted in the 21st century. Among anticipated highlights are Ray Mercer’s Shirt Off My Back, which originally premiered at the Auditorium Theatre in 2015, and Christopher Huggins’ Pyrokinesis, marking the last performance of the audience favorite before going into the vault. Additionally, Auditorium Theatregoers will be among the first to see Autumn Eckman’s Retroverse, which debuted in April.

“The Auditorium Theatre is always proud to welcome back one of Chicago’s longest running dance companies to its ‘summer home,’” noted Auditorium Theatre CEO Rich Regan. “We expect the joint to be jumping in June with this lively program.”

The high energy program features a ‘must see’ mix of solos, duets and full company works spanning the latest GDC repertoires, from the impassioned EXit4 (2013) by Ronen Koresh to Adam Houston’s terse pas de deux All For You.

Giordano Dance Chicago performs at the Auditorium Theatre for one night only, Saturday, June 11, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $38 (inclusive of all fees) and are now available at AuitoriumTheatre.org, by calling 312.341.2300, or at the Auditorium Theatre Box Office at 50 E Ida B Wells Drive in Chicago, IL.
