A new production inspired by the memories of Latino Chicago
Stories From the West Side
James Sanders & Conjunto and Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre present a new production inspired by the memories of Latino Chicago and the photography of historian and scholar Carlos Flores.
One of Chicago’s longest-running Latin jazz ensembles, James Sanders & Conjunto creates music that moves audiences figuratively and literally, where moments of hushed contemplation are followed by eruptions of joyous dancing.
With an intense focus on personal narratives, the diverse collective of artists that is Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre engages audiences in magnetic human stories at once new and deeply familiar.
Stories From the West Side is a program of the Dr. Timuel Black Inspiration & Education Project, supported by funding from the Jazz Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. Community Hosts & Partners: Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center and San Lucas United Church
