Bold Moves @ Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University
Feb 10 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

February 10, 2016 – February 21, 2016

bold-movesThe Joffrey winter program, a mixed repertory program entitled Bold Moves, features a World Premiere by British choreographer Ashley Page, along with the return of two popular works from the Joffrey repertoire – Yuri Possokhov’s RAkU and Jir˘í Kylián’s Forgotten Land.

A winner of many prestigious dance awards, Page is known for his daring collaborations with visual artists and contemporary composers. Though drawn from the discipline of ballet, his bold choreography explores new avenues for dance. Following 27 years dancing and choreographing for London’s Royal Ballet, and then a decade as the director of the Scottish Ballet, Page is currently working on numerous commissions from ballet and contemporary dance companies around the world, including the Joffrey. For this program, Page is creating a work (untitled) set to the violin concerto, Concentric Paths by much-in-demand composer, Thomas Ades.

Edie Carey with Andy Gullahorn @ SPACE
Feb 10 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

edie-careyChicago-based singer-songwriter Edie Carey is known for her unmistakable, soulful voice, her intelligent, heart-grabbing songs, but perhaps most especially for her warm, engaging presence on – and off – stage. As much a part of her show as the music itself, Carey’s wry and often self-mocking humor makes audiences feel as though they have just spent an evening with a very close friend.

Andy was born and raised in the rich musical climate of Austin, TX and then went to College at Belmont University in Nashville to join the legions of songwriters in the country music scene. After graduation, he spent a number of years as a staff writer for publishing companies while playing guitar on the road for singer/songwriter Jill Phillips (who he happened to be married to).
