The 2015-2016 season at the Harris Theater will begin with the Harris debut of AXIS Dance Company. Founded in 1987, AXIS emerged at a time when the Disabilities Rights and Independent Living Movement were gaining stride and the dance community was just beginning to open its doors to people with disabilities. In partnership with ADA 25 Chicago, the Harris is proud to present one of the world’s leading and most innovative ensembles of dancers with and without disabilities in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

One of the world’s most acclaimed ensembles of performers with and without disabilities, AXIS collaborates with world-class choreographers and has paved the way for the powerful contemporary dance form of Physically Integrated Dance since 1987. The Theater plans to engage Access Tickets Program partners in expanded enrichment activities with AXIS Dance, exploring movement, access and inclusivity in the performing arts and our communities.
