CHICAGO: Pivot Arts and Loyola University’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts (DFPA) have announced the lineup for the 2016 Incubator Program, which provides support for new projects and mentorship opportunities for multi-disciplinary artists. The program will culminate in a public showing and reception at Loyola University’s Mundelein Center for the Fine and Performing Arts on March 21.
The program begins with Walkabout Theater Company’s ensemble-driven show The Cure, a spiritual exploration of the cultural relationship with mortality, disease, and violence.
Following will be Heather Overbeck’s dance/theatre piece Azure & Indigo, an original performance piece inspired by Chicago’s jazz history.
Finally, playwright Juli Del Prete will develop Rumspringa! An American Odyssey, about four Amish teens who drive cross-country in an RV during their Rumspringa, a practice in the culture when young people can leave the community for a period. Carina Abbaticchio will direct.
