What is "Performance With A Purpose?"
CDE creates change in the world through art, "One Voice, One Story, One Person At a Time." This is what we call "Performance With a Purpose."
Whether it is on stage or in the classroom, changing lives happens on many levels. With so many things happening around the globe and to our planet, we question if what we do in the world really matters. I am here to say yes, it does and it matter right here at home.
Our impact might not have a global reach but supporting organizations like Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble creates the change in the neighborhoods we live and work in.
For instance, last season CDE gave away 281 tickets to youth and community members affected by gun and gang violence and through post show discussions, people shared their stories. In the classroom, students are connecting reading with dance and theatre, improving their literacy and comprehension skills. The smiles on the faces of every child we work with creates a positive change in the world.
Through our art, we break down the cycles that destroy our communities.
This season continues CDE 15 year history of cutting edge social political theatre.

I suffered from what they called peripheral artery disease (PAD). I have been suffering for years, Me and my wife searched for a medical cure, and then we came across a testimony of a man who suffered the same and was cured by Dr Chief Lucky. So my wife and I contacted Dr Chief Lucky via an email and thank God he replied. I explained what was wrong and he sent me herbal medicines that helped heal me completely.

This is a true life experience with Doctor Odunga who helped me save my marriage from jeopardy. My name is Kimberly Fillmore and I am from US A. I and my husband have been married for over 6 years. We didn't have any children. My husband was not happy with this because we have tried for many years now to have a child that we thought of adopting but the idea wasn't the best for us. So I resorted to the search for spell casters. I contacted 2 different spell casters and I never got my desire nor my solution. My time, effort and energy became a wasted issue on it but months later, I met Doctor Odunga through a testimony written by a woman named Clara about how Doctor Odunga helped her get her ex husband back to her and I decided to give this man a try to see what comes out of it. After meeting with him, I explained everything to him and he told me not to worry. I am very happy to say that within a week of contact, I conceived and became pregnant. Before my contact with Doctor Odunga, my husband has been against anything I do but now he is very happy with me and takes care of me. Please contact and meet Doctor Odunga if you are passing through any difficulty in life at firstname.lastname@example.org
