Still Inspired(?): Reflect

Now, more than ever, we rely on the arts to unite us and remind us of our shared humanity. For our 7th season, Still Inspired(?) will be producing and presenting a film in which we'll be reflecting on the world's current hardships. In sharing this film, we aim to further nurture our relationships to one another in exploring a collective human experience.

We are also providing choreographic opportunities to our performing artists. Two of our beautiful dancers will be presenting films to share with our virtual audience.

We are collaborating with a former featured visual artist from our 4th season, Sergio Gomez. In addition to working with Sergio, we are including an additional collaborator, to be announced.         

Your support will help cover costs to produce our film, including: Rental fees, artist fees, costumes/set design, and liability insurance.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the United Way of Metro Chicago’s regional recovery effort. Thank you so much for your support! 

Please continue reading to learn more about Still Inspired(?)'s mission and vision.

Still Inspired (?)​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ is a dance performance showcasing the inspirations of multiple independent dance and visual artists. With four pieces and four choreographers, the performance attempts to share visions within the realm of art between “still” and “live.”​

Still Inspired (?) also questions our current societal views of art as an outlet for creation, enlightenment, and education. With ever-changing advancements and a growing want for immediate satisfaction, can we still be inspired by the patience and virtue of art as an alternate means of communication?
