Join Elements for Chicago’s first fully improvised ballet, featuring a live-improvised score by vocalist and composer ALEXA GRÆ

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Elements Ballet as we present SOAKED | SURFACE, believed to be the first fully improvised evening-length ballet in the history of Chicago dance. 

From the musical score, to the lighting, to the dancing itself, all aspects of this unprecedented production will be improvised, paying homage to Elements’ longstanding practice of improvisation as a training technique and to Chicago’s well-known tradition of improvised theater and comedy.

Elements Ballet presents SOAKED | SURFACE, Thursday, 2/14 and Friday, 2/15, 7:30 PM at the Hamlin Park Fieldhouse Theater (map)
