We do this in the genre of Tanztheatre, "which unites all art media to achieve an all-embracing, radical change in humankind."


Residents of the Chicagoland area are inspired to make their world a better place by exploring important social issues in an artistic setting. All students have access to arts education and can holistically develop their skills to be proactive, positive members of society.

Land Acknowledgment:

Ebenezer Lutheran Church Auditorium sits on the traditional homelands of the Three Fires Confederacy: Odawa, Ojibwe, and Potawatomi nations, as well as the Fox, Ho-Chunk, Inoka, Miami, Sac, and their descendants. We recognize that Indigenous peoples are the traditional stewards of the land that we now occupy, living here long before Chicago was a city and still thriving here today. We invite you to join us in offering them our respect and gratitude."
