In 2013, our focus was increasing awareness of traffiIcking and domestic violence in Chicago, in collaboration with CAASE (Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation) and CMBWN (Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women’s Network).

TRAFFICKING & DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
In 2014, our performances focused on deepening engagement with the environment, in collaboration with Greenheart International, and The Recyclery Collective. A series of sampler events culminated in our main 2014 event in October, Breaking Ice. Guest artists for these performances included Winifred Haun & Dancers, modern dancer Matthew McMunn, and video artist Jessica Segall.

EDGE OF SHELTER
Our 2015-16 activities culminated in Edge of Shelter, two performances that focused on different aspects of homelessness in Chicago, in collaboration with many individuals who are either currently or have previously experienced homelessness. These performances were held at the Buchanan Chapel (Fourth Presbyterian Church, 126 E. Chestnut St, Chicago) on Friday and Saturday November 18th and 19th.
Video samples documenting some of our creative processes will be uploaded here and on our Edge of Shelter transmedia website (link provided on our Edge of Shelter page). Please check back soon!
