Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago faculty members Michel Rodriguez Cintra and Meghann Wilkinson are in the cast of Lucky Plush Productions’ upcoming presentation Tab Show, performing at the Harris Theatre in Chicago’s Millennium Park Thursday and Friday, April 26 and 27. Tab Show features two works — Rink Life and Curb Candy – that highlight Lucky Plush’s signature blend of layered choreography, witty dialogue, and socially relevant storytelling. Lucky Plush Productions is a Chicago-based dance theatre company led by founder and artistic director Julia Rhoads. Lucky Plush is committed to provoking and supporting an immediacy of presence — a palpable liveness — shared by performers in real-time with audiences. A unique hybrid of high-level dance and theatre, Lucky Plush’s work is recognized for its layered choreography, moving content, surprising humor, and socially relevant storytelling.
In Rink Life, a dance theatre work loosely inspired by classic roller rink culture, people seamlessly move between anonymity and community, individual stylings and group dynamics, movement and song. The sound design is entirely generated by the performers and builds upon disparate fragments of information – partially overheard conversations, musical scales, and pop-song earworms. Curb Candy includes re-mixed excerpts from Lucky Plush repertory presented in an entirely new work performed by Lucky Plush ensemble members.
