BLAZE OF GLORY The 1978 Italian film The Inglorious Bastards lights up the MCA for two nights this week.
Don’t-miss picks for Wed 01.20.10 through Tue 01.26.10:
dance Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan
FREEBIE OF THE WEEK
dance Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
As part of the Art Institute’s yearlong series 500 Ways of Looking at Modern (perhaps you’ve seen those red cubes popping up across town), HSDC’s new artistic director, Glenn Edgerton, leads guests on a gallery walk through the Modern Wing, while dancers, in a highbrow version of the schoolyard game statue, act out movements from the surrounding paintings and sculptures. Think of it as a three-part freebie: entry to the Modern Wing, a performance by HSDC, and a chance to size up Edgerton.
