IN/MOTION: CHICAGO’S DANCE FILM FESTIVAL

In honor of the ADA 25th Anniversary, Loyola University Chicago’s Department of Dance, in collaboration with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s Parkinson’s Project will screen “Capturing Grace,” a documentary film that depicts the intersection of dance and Parkinson’s Disease, as part of Loyola University Chicago’s (LUC) IN/MOTION Dance Film Festival.

The screening will take place on October 24th, 2015 at 1 p.m. at the Mundelein Center for the Arts, Room 409 at LUC’s Lake Shore Campus. Immediately following the screening, faculty from Hubbard Street’s Parkinson’s Project will lead a lecture/demonstration and moderate a question and answer session with the dancers, educators, and administrators of the Parkinson’s Project.

The intention of this programming is to celebrate the community of artists living with disabilities, specifically Parkinson’s Disease, through a dance lens. Founded in 2008, The Parkinson’s Project is a division of the Adaptive Dance Project at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, which aims to provide inclusive programming to dancers with disabilities. This collaboration between LUC and Hubbard Street works to educate and engage its audience through the screening of “Capturing Grace” and through the live lecture/demonstration of the dancers in the Parkinson’s Project.
