Buy Tickets Here Patriotism and perversity are fractured, fused and confused as six performers, a live musician, and over fifty sculptural objects lead audience members on a roaming performance through one of Chicago's best kept secrets, Northerly Island. Combining text, dance, puppetry and sculpture, The Victory Project creates sweeping worlds and strange interactions between moving bodies, sonic objects, and historical propaganda - dismantling the female body in war.
Featuring movement Joy Davis, Silvita Diaz-Brown, Suzy Grant, Karen Faith, Melissa McNamara and Erica Mott developed through intensive research and training in Mott's unique interdisciplinary methodology.
Chicago composer Ryan Ingebritsen adds a shifting soundscape generated directly from the dancers' movement and mixed live.
