FRIDAY TICKETED PERFORMANCES
Compangia TPO in Bleu!
Doris Duke Theatre, 4:15pm & 8:15pm
From Italy, the innovative theatre company Compagnia TPO presents Bleu!, a wondrous interactive spectacle of light, animation, and movement - a perfect theatre experience for children, and grownups too. Through immersive technology and imaginative set design, Bleu! travels under the sea to explore a mythical world of sea creatures and ancient legends. Audiences of all ages are invited onstage to engage with the dancers and the motion-sensored set, or simply relax and enjoy the adventure.
Tickets: $28 General Admission
$10 Youth Tickets for all shows, must be accompanied by an adult ticket.
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
Ted Shawn Theatre, 8pm
This Chicago-based audience favorite returns to the Pillow with a sensational program. The program features Jiří Kylián's vivid Falling Angels, a stark all-female work danced to "Drumming" by contemporary composer Steve Reich, and the dramatic Mediterranean-inspired work Gnawa, by Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato. PACOPEPEPLUTO, by Hubbard Street dancer and resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo, closes the show with a trio for three male dancers set to the sweet songs of Dean Martin and "rich in circular turns, jumps and dashing Olympian form" (The Chicago Tribune).
$19 tickets for Under 35 Fridays available!
