The Fly Honey Show, an annual summertime performance event created and directed by Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago alumna Erin Kilmurray ’08, returns for its seventh year August 18-September 3 at the Chopin Theatre, . The Fly Honey Show 7 features “an ensemble of empowered individuals who come together to provoke desire and encourage all who chose to walk through the door to love themselves boldly.” For tickets, click here.
The Fly Honeys are a group of choreographers, dancers, musicians, actors, designers, and performance artists who promote a safe space for empowering identity and self-expression. The Fly Honey Show is their cabaret creation: a dance and performance concert “celebrating body + sex positivity through a feminist perspective.” The Fly Honey Show is produced by The Inconvenience, a multi-disciplinary arts collective founded in 2008.
Kilmurray, a graduate of the Dance Center’s Dance BA program, is also one of the production’s choreographers. The show’s music director/composer is John Cicora ’10, a graduate of the Columbia College Chicago Music Department‘s Music BA program with a concentration in instrumental jazz.
