The Nexus Project
What happens when one project, performed by two men serves as the nexus for an entire dance community? Chicago based dancer and multimedia artist Benjamin Holliday Wardell brings together ten choreographers from across the Chicago dance world to explore the experience of making fresh interpersonal connections. Through a unique process that inverts the typical choreographic hierarchy, this project will connect the dots of many artistic minds in a search for the common thread of disparate perspectives. Each choreographer will create movement material on Benjamin and performing cohort Michel Rodriguez Cintra and turn that material over to the performers to shapeshift, mix, explode, and brew into a cohesive evening of dance theater.
