Gray Center Fellow Claudia Lavista ("Staging the Invisible" with Shulamit Ran and Augusta Read Thomas) joins fellowship colaborator Tomás Gueglio for the world premiere of Proa ("Prow") for four dancers and harp at the Steppenwolf Theatre.
SIDEBAR welcomes internationally renowned artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Dr. Omar Kholeif (Curator, MCA Chicago) and Professor W.J.T Mitchell (English, University of Chicago) to the Gray Center Lab for a lecture and conversation exploring Abu Hamdan's work on the politics of listening and visuality. The discussion will center on Abu Hamdan's work as a "private ear," and his projects that deal with the intersection of politics and legality in the Middle East and abroad.
