In The Presence of Chasms
Choreographers Megan Rhyme and Tanniqua-Kay Buchanan explore the idea of chasms -- chasms between private behavior and public speech, between cool and warm colors, and between hope and dread in this evening of short dance works.
Megan Rhyme is a dancer, choreographer, and teaching artist. She has performed with Chicago artists such as Synapse Arts, Salty Lark Dance, Renegade Dance Architects, Janet Schmid, 3 card molly, and Khecari. Her work has been produced by the Chicago Park Districts Night Out In The Parks, Synapse Arts, and the Chicago Fringe Festival. She is inspired by intellectual subjects such as science and sociology; her mission is to explore the human brain through the lens of physical experience. Rhymes ongoing collaboration with physicist Elizabeth Hicks, Far From Equilibrium, was recognized in 2016 by the Chicago Reader as Reader Recommended and featured by Tech Month Chicago.
Dancer/designer Tanniqua-Kay Buchanan received her Bachelor of Science degree in Dance and a minor in Community planning with a design emphasis from Kansas State University. Her thesis, The Black Dancing body explored through color theory -social experiment was presented at the National Dance Education Organization conference (2015) in Phoenix, Arizona. Tanniqua-Kay was a Guest Artist this year at the Hairpin Arts Center (2017) and Kansas State University Ebony Theater Arts Festival (2017) with her A Man Was Lynched Yesterday Choreography and continues to be a teaching artist and freelance dance artist in the Chicagoland area. Her choreography is a hybrid between two worlds. As she strives to build curriculum based on art integration, Tanniqua-Kay works on developing her own organization, [Muse] dance + design, an organization committed to bridging cultural gaps of both disciplines by exploring the intersections of dance and design. She will embark in her Masters of Urban Planning and Policy degree from the University of Illinois of Chicago this Fall 2018 with a concentration in Spatial Planning and Urban Design.
