Chicago Dance Company, The Seldoms Exit Disclaimer: Science And Fiction Ahead

April 24-27, 2014
Marjorie Ward Marshall Dance Center Ballroom Theater

April 24, 25 and 26 at 8 p.m.
April 27 at 2 p.m.

Exit Disclaimer: Science and Fiction Ahead is an hour-long dance theater work that surveys our rancorous, divisive national debate about climate change, and its divergent positions ranging from denial, skepticism and indifference to urgency. Exit Disclaimer premiered at The Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago in 2012, and toured to Taipei, Taiwan. Within The Seldoms body of work, Exit Disclaimer sits alongside two previous works - Monument (2008) and Stupormarket (2011). Both of these earlier pieces (about landfills and consumption, and the current recession and opposing economic theories, respectively), and this new major work arise from a fundamental question that asks what tensions exist between our dual identities as consumer and citizen, and between private goods and the public good?

A pre-performance talk with Artistic Director Carrie Hanson and The Seldoms╩╝ dramaturg and NU faculty member, historian Michael J. Kramer, precedes the performance on Friday, April 25 at 6:45 p.m. A post-performance conversation follows the performance on Saturday, April 26.

Performance tickets are $20 general admission. Northwestern University Faculty/Staff are $15. Student/Senior tickets are $10. Group discounts available; call (773) 859-3030 for information about group discounts.
