Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago alum Sara Maslanka ’13, artistic director of Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble, will unveil her first full-length work for the company, Consumed, on Friday, March 10, at the auditorium of Ebenezer Lutheran Church, located at 1650 W. Foster in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.

The satirical multimedia production follows personal stories of distraction and downfall of ordinary Americans, asking: Entangled in the addictive culture of media and technology, how do the people of tomorrow make the choice to begin consuming culture objectively? By disconnecting and reconnecting with one another, can we rise up, redefining our modern American Dream? For a promotional video of the new work, click here.
