July 31 and August 1
Orchid: Dormancy and Becoming is an interdisciplinary dance and performance work by Mitsu Salmon with a live soundscape by La Spacer.
The work will be performed outside and interacts with the environment in which it is presented. Through dance, electronic dance music, and lectures; the piece investigates the history and symbolism of orchids as connected to imperialism, sexuality, and the environment. This project
was made possible through the support of the Chicago Dancemakers Forum Lab Award.
