Pivot Arts Festival
Announcing the 2022 Pivot Arts Festival!!!
A Celebration of Contemporary Performance + Film
June 10 – 18
at The Edge Theater 5451 N. Broadway Street, Chicago
Come gather in person for a celebration of contemporary performance + film in live space. You’ll find adventurous dance, theater, opera, music, film/video, works-in-progress and more! For the 2022 festival we are amplifying artists who have demonstrated creativity and resiliency in creating artistic work during these two challenging years (Photo above by AJ Incammicia).
IN/MOTION and Pivot Arts present short dance films by local Chicago artists who created digital works during the pandemic followed by inspirational speakers celebrating resiliency + creativity.
Pivot Arts is proud to present highlights from the Chicago Dancemakers Forum lab artists and recipients of digital dance grants with a showing of works-in-progress and screening of films made by local artists.
Join the artists of FORCE!, a new opera in development, depicting a group of women and femmes of color who, while waiting to get into a prison, find a memory-erasing mold leaking from the waiting room toilet—and realize their futures may depend on entering the prison behind the waiting room wall.
Beaten Path is an innovative dance-music performance that merges Carnatic (associated with southern India) and Black American jazz influences, creating a passionate fusion of contemporary music and dance styles. On Friday night, this piece can be viewed on its own or in combination with Rosina: Remixed. On Saturday, this piece is performed along with additional artists to be announced!
Returning to Pivot Arts where it performed to sold-out crowds, The Rosina Project is happy to present ROSINA: REMIXED! The hip-h’opera inspired by The Barber of Seville celebrates coming together with hit tracks and dance numbers from the original production, along with newly created material from their recent solo ventures in hip hop, beat boxing and more!
