Dancing with Death
In 1932, between the two world wars, German dancemaker Kurt Jooss created his powerful The Green Table. The central figure of Death looms over the work. To mark the 80th anniversary of this seminal antiwar ballet, the Joffrey - the first American company to acquire it - performs The Green Table Oct. 17-28. The program, which includes Kudelka's Pretty BALLET and Kylián's Forgotten Land, also marks a new beginning: the first program in which the Chicago Philharmonic, in a new partnership with the Joffrey, will play live.
