On Saturday, March 3, Dance Union presents Simply Showing. The evening will feature dance by four divergent choreographers/groups: Amy Lynne Barr, Marie Casimir, Double DJ, and Liz Joynt Sandberg. The only criterion for the artists is to bring a dance of their choice to share (new, reprised, experimental, in-progress, etc…). The evening concludes with a discussion. DANCE UNION creator and curator Ayako Kato is joined by guest curators Liz Joynt Sandberg and Suzy Grant for the Spring/Summer series
Lighting design by Garvin Jellison. A discussion will follow.

Marie Casimir offers dawn / avanjou, a text-based movement piece exploring the rituals and hybridizations between Catholicism and Haitian Vodou as a cultural mark of colonization.
Amy Lynne Barr’s solo work mixes humor, poignancy, and extreme physicality; engaging the audience viscerally, Amy creates work that is intellectual in conception and creation.
Liz Joynt Sandberg uses improvisational dance to address burning questions about secret ingredients, how to grow a lush and vibrant garden, and offers tips for navigating the recipes of Martha Stewart in Best Wishes.
Darlings of the queer performance circuit, Double DJ will share their love and fascination of all-girl musical groups, simultaneously entertaining and calling into question the perception of gender.
Menomonee Club for Boys and Girls is located near the intersection of North Avenue, Clybourn and Halsted. CTA: Red Line North/Clybourn Station (2 min. walk); Halsted #8 Bus to Blackhawk St; or North Ave #72 Bus to Halsted St.
