Chicago Dance History Project (CDHP) has confirmed the lineup and schedule for its Interview Marathon on Sunday, Jan. 31, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
Interviewees will appear live from international locations and around the U.S. CDHP Executive/Artistic Director Jenai Cutcher will conduct all the interviews from Chicago's Auditorium Theatre, which has donated its space for the event.
The Interview Marathon represents decades of dance history personified in more than 40 interview subjects: artistic directors, choreographers, performers, presenters, administrators, and others who have worked and/or continue to work in Chicago.
Just a few of the scheduled participants include Lar Lubovitch, of the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company and Chicago Dancing Festival; choreographer/performing artist Awilda Rodriguez Lora; The Joffrey Ballet Artistic Director Ashley Wheater; Mark Morris, of Mark Morris Dance Group; choreographer Twyla Tharp; Eduardo Vilaro, of Ballet Hispanico and Luna Negra Dance Theater; Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago's Regina Perry-Carr; and Lou Conte, founder of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago/Lou Conte Dance Studio.
The 15-minute segments feature one-on-one interviews as well as small-group conversations on a specific theme, including dance presenting, artistic director legacies, dance education on the South Side, and more. CDHP also will present the inaugural Maurice Seymour Award for Vision and Service to HMS Media's Scott Silberstein. Clips of archival footage, some not seen publicly until this event, are interspersed between live interview segments.
All-day passes are available for a minimum donation of $20 at chicagodancehistory.org/events. Registrants will receive a password-protected link to the event.
