Description: Safety in Numbers is a full-length dance work dedicated to exploring company members' individual ties to the Chicagoland area. As the company identified the differences between members as newcomers or natives to Chicago, they noticed a common desire for comfort and familiarity, whether through the anonymity of a large city or proximity to home. Safety in Numbers became a reflection of these findings. Safety in Numbers premiered in July 2009 in Chicago in its original form, as individual works of company members. After a sold-out, two-week run, the group elected to re-examine Safety in Numbers and tour the revised work locally and regionally. Each moment of the original piece was explored, edited, and recreated by all company members sharing in the choreographic decision-making process. The result is a cohesive intersection of ideas shared and supported by all company members.

Show Length: 60 minutes
