Posted:The Flow Show 2014 Flow Arts Showcase Coming to Chicago
Save the Dates: March 28th - 30th
We proudly announce that the Flow Show, a showcase of some of the country's best talent in the flow arts, will be coming to Chicago in 2014! Chicago is honored to be the third city selected for this intimate celebration of movement and community. As proved in other cities, this two night spectacle of object manipulation and technical dance composition is certain to leave a memorable impression on the Windy City.
Flow Show Chicago will take place at Studio 773, a recently renovated theatre with black box elegance of draped curtains and modern architecture. The venue is located one mile west of Lake Michigan and is conveniently nestled within unique dining and shopping experiences.
The Flow Show anticipates a delightful evening. Since it's birth in San Francisco, 2009, the Flow Show has been met with consistently sold out performances and rave reviews, providing audiences with inspiration and excitement for a growing art form.
Flow arts communities across the country, from San Francisco to Brooklyn, New York are teaming with creativity and talent, each with their own unique local flair. The Midwest, too, is home to a thriving community of object manipulation enthusiasts and performers. It is only natural that Flow Show Chicago 2014 is born. With only 150 seats available at Studio 773, Chicago anticipates a full house.
