Commissura is a premiere from Julia Rae Antonick, a Chicago-based independent dancer and choreographer known for her integration of such disparate forms as contact improvisation, modern dance, and Indonesian dance. Antonick brings filigree to physics and yields a profoundly physical, subtly nuanced choreography. Commissura represents the culmination of Antonick’s research project, Duologue, which explores what it means to be a duet artist. This project was funded in part by the Chicago Dancemakers Forum Lab Artist Grant and the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
