Kristina Isabelle Dance Company will premiere her CDF piece, The Floating City on October 24, 25, 26 Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at Links Hall at 7:00 pm. This multimedia production explores the place within, a place of feeling stuck or in transition, the place between this world and the world in our heads. It is a surreal exploration of shifting environments, creating a moving landscape of time and relationships inspired by the writings of Haruki Murakami.
The Floating City is choreographed and directed by Kristina Isabelle, with set design by Grant Sabin, video design by JR Gualtieri and Jim Forni of Octane Rich Media, music by Christopher Preissing, lighting design by Julie Ballard. Performers Diana Deaver, Kristina Isabelle, Angela Luem, Felicia McBride and Marley Schmidt.
In addition to her Lab Artist award, Isabelle developed The Floating City developed with support from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events' In The Works residency program.
