A group of washed-up super heroes join forces to create a nonprofit think tank but get caught up in the politics of branding and group dynamics. Fighting evil ain’t what it used to be. This is the basis for Trip the Light Fantastic: The Making of SuperStrip, Lucky Plush’s newest creation. Funny, smart and thought provoking, Lucky Plush is a breath of fresh air in the dance world. They’re going to quickly become a TITAS favorite!
As the only dance organization to receive the MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions, the Chicago-based company is recognized for its layered choreography, palpable liveness, and socially relevant storytelling—all of which characterize its newest work created by Artistic Director Julia Rhoads and frequent collaborator Leslie Buxbaum Danzig.
Julia speaks about our residencies at Krannert Center for the Performing Arts during the creation process of Trip the Light Fantastic: The Making of SuperStrip.
