Same Planet Different World Dance Theatre & Peter Carpenter Performance Project

Two Chicago-based companies—Same Planet Different World Dance Theatre (SPDW) and Peter Carpenter Performance Project—are joining forces for a shared program. SPDW is commissioning a new work from Israeli-trained (now based in New York) choreographer Netta Yerushalmy inspired by visual art evoking a stroll through an art museum. SPDW’s artistic director Joanna Rosenthal’s new work Whiteout examines impulsive behavior with the central metaphor of a “white out” suggesting a sense of moral decentered-ness. Peter Carpenter will continue his cycle with Rituals of Abundance for Lean Times #10: Entanglements of Power, a new work informed by critical theory that interrogates our appetite for domination, power and violence.
