Radioactive Practice


Abby Z and the New Utility
Radioactive Practice
April 9-11, 2020 • 7:30 p.m.
First time appearing in Chicago
“an onslaught of thwacking arms, emphatic kicks, dizzying spins, swift somersaults, perilous balances and slippery contortions.” -The New York Times

Drawing on distinct histories in hip-hop, modern dance, West African, tap, synchronized swimming, and basketball, Abby Z and the New Utility explores the conflicts and possibilities created from aesthetic and cultural collisions in this new work. Radioactive Practice pushes its collaborative team of 10 dancers beyond perceived limits as they create a new tradition built from the inner workings of established forms. Choreographer-on-the-rise Abby Zbikowski has been hailed for her “unique and utterly authentic movement vocabulary in complex and demanding structures to create works of great energy, intensity, surprise, and danger.”

Post-Performance Conversation: Thursday, April 9
Pre-Performance Talk: Friday, April 10 at 6:30 p.m.
