Tiffany Lawson Dance is excited to be in partnership with the Chicago Public Libraries for another season!
We kicked off our partnership two summers ago with an event at the Museum of Science and Industry, with a special appearance by Chicago's mayor, Rahm Emanuel. Tours to 20 Chicago Public Libraries continued during the 2015-16 season, where we focused on bringing The Brothers Grimm Fairytales to life through music and dance.
Last summer, our program was performed at another 20 libraries and contains elements of travel as we "Move Through Chicago." We explored some of Chicago's most iconic landmarks, by way of bus, train, bike, and boat.
This summer, we are thrilled to bring our original superhero ballet, MELODY, to the libraries. The company's performance is an interactive audience presentation, featuring live music, original songs and instrumentals by Nicholas Davio, and original choreography by TLD company members. We follow Melody on her journey to defeat her evil twin, Dissonance, with the help of her superhero friends. If you have children (or know someone who does) and would be interested in attending these free library shows, please refer to our 2017 performance schedule below!
