One of my favorite things about the city of Chicago is, as many of you might have guessed, the weather. Now, before you all make frantic conference calls plotting my death (hint: I’m fatally allergic to flannel shirts and Mel Gibson), I strongly urge you to sit down, take a deep breath, cough, blow your nose, pop a Tylenol, drink some yerba matta tea, lay down, and let me explain. While the current weather has reduced many of us, like me, to hapless, miserable lumps of DNA with a running spigot for a nose (before that I was just hapless and miserable), it has also given us an excuse to appreciate indoors happenings that much more, and if anything, allowed us to get that much pickier about the four walls within which we’d rather spend our time.
That said, you would be hard-pressed to find anything better than world-renowned Bat-Sheva Dance Company performance at the Auditorium Theatre on February 7th and 8th. The company will be making a stop in Chicago for the first time in 35 years, making this a truly memorable occasion. The lovechild of dance icon Martha Graham and Baroness Batsheva de Rothschild, the company will be performing “Deca-Dance”, as choreographed by international superstar Ohad Naharin. Or, of course, you could simply stay in, put on your finest lumberjack attire, and watch “Mad Max”. I’m just sayin.
