Clinard at 20: Premiere of Everyday People Everyday Action
Clinard Dance presents the premiere of Everyday People Everyday Action. This premiere is the culmination of a three year long project with Japanese photographer Akito Tsuda, inspired by his photos of Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood in the early 1990's.

Akito's photography animates the disciplines of flamenco, beat-boxing, and classical Spanish music, continuously shifting the background to the foreground, past to present. Photos of the neighborhood tailor shop, the shoemaker, a smiling face at the laundry excite flamenco's percussive footwork to join in with the rhythms of the sewing machine, the washers/dyers and the complex sounds taken in while walking down 18th street. Peoples everyday repetitive actions/sounds are the percussive fuel that drive the performance's choreography and tempo.

Everyday People Everyday Action is a snapshot, a painting of movements and sounds. It is work that tells a story about everyday people and their everyday actions in service of celebrating and magnifying ordinary and everyday beauty.  

The premiere event will celebrate Clinard Dance's 20th anniversary, with additional performances by the company's Flamenco Quartet Project, a post-performance reception and discussion with Akito Tsuda, and a ticketed raffle including free classes, the chance to sit in on future rehearsals, and more to be announced.

Audience members are invited to bring one or more photographs taken in their neighboorhood, past or present, in exchange for raffle tickets.


"Akito always had a gift for engaging people, nature, and the environment, using the camera for what it is: a conduit, or passport, that connects the heartbeat of humanity across the world."

--John H. White, Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist and Columbia faculty member


This program is supported by grants from the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, and Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation


Performance starts at 2pm. The museum is open 10am-5pm and is free and open to the public.
