OSCILLATIONS presents concerts by artists selected from submissions received in response to an open call for proposals.

In the final evening of Oscillations performances, composer, musician, and puppeteer Divyamaan Sahoo will present his new work “Flatland” and Les Chanteuses du Rien (Elaine Lemieux, Hanna Brock, and Sara Zalek) will present an immersive improvisation utilizing the entire ESS building.

LES CHANTEUSES DU RIEN is Sara Zalek (movement), Elaine Lemieux (voice), and Hanna Brock (instrumentalist). We explore the dynamics of resonance in relation to space using classical scores, experimental opera, improvised sound, expanded cinema, and Butoh dance. Our gestures come from strong desire to communicate intimately, to seek an opening to our fears in an embrace. Ultimately, we want to surprise, disarm, and uplift the spirit, to continue weaving the long tail of our evolutionary story. We have been making in this collective for two years, in all sort of venues in Chicago, including Chicago Cultural Center, Edgar Miller Legacy Studio, Silent Funny, Ragdale Foundation and the Hungry Brain, and are looking to tour in 2018. We have been supported by Chicago Dancemakers Forum, Cheney Foundation, the City of Chicago, New England Foundation for the Arts, and the Ragdale Foundation.
