Elevate lands at LInks Hall for a night of spacious dreams with The Humans and body transformation with Kris Lenzo. Erin Kilmurray shifts the room from performance to dance party and the insane speed and rhythmic complexity of The ERA Footwork Crew is dance from another dimension. 

$10 - General Admission


Limited Seating.  We encourage you to purchase tickets in advance, although any open seats will be made available at the door on the night of the performance.



Rachel Bunting / The Humans
transforms stories and family memories, building enchanted worlds infused with intuitive images, strange animals and kinetic objects, where the fantastic is supported by the real. Her company’s performance of SUNS is from the larger work A Series of Dad Dreams.



is a Chicago-based footwork crew celebrated for their hyperspeed dancing and frenetic beats who both do footwork battles and stage performances. The ERA members have performed widely including at London's Barbican, Pitchfork Chicago, Lollapalooza, and South by Southwest; and have collaborated with various artists and collectives such as Teklife, Towkio, Chance The Rapper, Savemoney and Mic Terror of Treated Crew.

Erin Kilmurray 
explores the separate turf of dance studios and nightclubs in her projects with The Inconvenience and The Fly Honey Show. In Search Party, she raises the stakes by combining them, taking us on a gradual slide from the intensity of an intimate performance to the joy of an immersive dance party. 

Kris Lenzo 
dances with MOMENTA Performing Arts Company, performing two distinct solo works this evening. He made the transition to dance after more than two decades as a wheelchair athlete and a national champion in wheelchair basketball and wheelchair track.
