The Humans Present “Inevitability and Escape” in Paper Shoes

November 29th, 2011

The Humans dance company member and featured dancer in the celebrated queer film, Were the World Mine, Matthew McMunn, will captivate you with his personality and his passion for everything including dance and DJing for Mary Monica’s Music on Navy Pier’s Mystic Blue Cruises along Chicago’s shoreline. In December, he will perform in the Rachel Bunting’s production entitled “Paper Shoes” with Bunting, Karla Beltchenko, Kelly Kane, Helen Lee, and Precious Jennings.

With a degree from Columbia College Chicago in Dance and Cultural Studies, McMunn’s company performed an excerpt of “Paper Shoes” as part of a much larger Chicago dance event organized by Dance Union in December of 2010. Choreographer Rachel Bunting and The Humans are presenting the completed piece at 7:30pm on Dec 1, 2 & 8,9  at Hamlin Park Fieldhouse Theater (3035 N. Hoyne) as a culmination of The Chicago Dancemakers Forum Lab Artist Grant.

The following are two excerpts from the event flier:

“Paper shoes is a dance/performance piece about inevitability and escape. It is presented as a series of curious, ritualistic and sensual vignettes that illustrate three themes: the tragic time when children stop pretending, the disintegration of romantic love, and the hypothetical last moments of a women’s fertility.”

“This program is part of The Chicago Moving Company Performance Project. The Chicago Moving Company is an Arts Partner with the Park District in residence at Hamlin Park.”
