Tab Show at Harris Theater for Music and Dance | Chicago, IL

  • 205 East Randolph Street Chicago, IL, 60601 United States (map)

Tab Show features two distinct Lucky Plush excerpts which highlight the company's signature blend of layered choreography, witty dialog, and socially relevant storytelling. Along with a favorite remixed Lucky Push excerpt, the company will premiere Rink Life, a collaboration between artistic director Julia Rhoads and vocalist and composer Bethany Clearfield (Grant Park Chorus, Chicago Symphony Chorus, and the band Outertown). Rink Life, inspired by classic roller rink culture, reveals a world in which people seamlessly move between anonymity and community, individual stylings and group dynamics, movement and song. The sound design is generated entirely by the performers and builds upon the disparate fragments of information—partially overheard conversations, musical scales, pop-song eagworms—that a person assembles to make meaning in their everyday life.
