Joel Hall’s Production – “Anja: The Unexpected”

I had the pleasure to accompany my friend, photographer Jennifer Girard, to Joel Hall’s dress rehearsal for his new production “Anja: The Unexpected”.  It was an exceptional collaboration of Chicago Jazz artists and Joel Hall Dance Company.  The graceful emotional moves of the dancers,  combined with live music, enveloped in spectacular lighting in front of a mystical backdrop energized the stage and was a feast for all the senses.

Make a point to support this extraordinary and all so Chicago event, there are only four shows scheduled, August 7, 8, 14, & 15 at 7:30 PM at the Reva & David Logan Center for the Arts.

Below are a few images from the dress rehearsal and here is more from the actual show on the last day.
