HEDWIG DANCES is a contemporary dance theater ensemble under the artistic direction of its founder, Jan Bartoszek. Named after Ms. Bartoszek’s paternal grandmother, Hedwig Dances’ bold, interdisciplinary collaborations combine poetic choreography with sculptural artifacts, projected images and haunting original music. The resulting dances resonate with complexity and depth and provoke emotion, connection and wonder. As the dance company-in-residence at the Chicago Cultural Center, Hedwig Dances reaches out into the community through public performances, collaborations and dance education.
“A remarkable evening of dance, theater, music, and art.”
—Wynne Delacoma, Chicago Sun-Times
