Echo Mine is a new work inspired by and created alongside Chicago dance icon and founding Hubbard Street dancer, Claire Bataille. The full evening performance explores the importance of legacy, artistic lineage and the everlasting essence of its muse, Claire.
Echo Mine, slated to premiere in late 2019 will include an original score by Califone, scenic and projection design by CandyStations (Deborah Johnson), lighting design by Eric Southern and costume design by Hogan McLaughlin. It will be danced by three women, all current or former members of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.
The work is supported in part by a 2018 Princess Grace Foundation - USA Special Projects grant and 2018 DCASE Individual Artist grant. The music is commissioned by Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation.
