Danztheatre is an interdisciplinary performance art that combines dance, theatre, and visual art. Rudolph von Laban originally developed “tanztheater” in the 1920s from “German expressionist dance” in Germany and Vienna. He hoped to “unite all art media and achieve an all-embracing, radical change in humankind.” Following that same spirit, many of our interdisciplinary performances explore themes of social justice or human condition.
Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble challenges, engages and inspires audiences both onstage and in the classroom, through innovative, multidisciplinary storytelling in the genre of Tanztheatre, which unites all art media and to achieve an all-embracing, radical change in humankind. As an Ensemble, we collaboratively create thought-provoking arts performances and educational outreach programs incorporating elements of theatre, music, movement, visual arts and literary text. We are dedicated to “performance with a purpose.”
