Winifred Haun was invited by Fused Muse Ensemble's Artistic Director, Sophie Webber, to choreograph two works, one to Vivaldi's "Winter" (Four Seasons) and another to Osvaldo Golijov's "How Slow the Wind." The dance to Vivaldi, "Cold Air," will be performed by six dancers from Winifred Haun & Dancers and one violinist. Cold Air is a swirling, driving evocation of the complexities of our coldest season. The Golijov work, currently untitled, will feature an opera singer performing and dancing with five dancers from Winifred Haun & Dancers. Fused Muse will play live music for both works.
"Breaking Ice" will be presented at Link's Hall, 3111 N. Western in Chicago on Thursday, October 16, Friday, October 17 and Saturday, October 18. All performances are at 7:00pm. Tickets are $25 for general admission and $20 for students and seniors, and can be purchased on-line at TicketFly, https://www.ticketfly.com/search/?q=Breaking+Ice or at the door. There will be a fundraising event immediately preceding the opening night performance on Thursday, October 16 at 6:00pm. Tickets for the fundraiser are $50 and includes a free ticket to the show.
All net proceeds from this event will benefit the Awassa Children's Orphanage of Ethiopia, which, besides helping children, has an environmental mission to plant trees, dig fresh water wells, and is powered entirely through solar panels.
