Thodos Dance Chicago (TDC), the acclaimed contemporary company with a distinct American choreographic voice, presents an exhilarating evening of dance.  Leading the program is the critically celebrated story-ballet, A Light in the Dark: the story of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, co-choreographed by Melissa Thodos and Broadway legend Ann Reinking with an original score by Bruce Wolosoff, named one of the TOP TEN DANCES of 2013 by the Chicago Sun-Times.  The second act will feature works from TDC’s vibrant repertoire showcasing the company’s award-winning style described as “breathtakingly athletic” and “powerfully beautiful.”

*Prior to the performance, the company will conduct a tactile tour of the set, props and costumes. This tour is intended to allow individuals with special needs to experience the performance area up close including demonstrations of special effects and moving set pieces as well as being allowed to touch items used during the performance.
