Chicago-based choreographer Robyn Mineko Williams presents materials and selections from her upcoming work, Echo Mine, inspired by and created alongside late Chicago dance icon and founding Hubbard Street dancer Claire Bataille. Williams shares her process for building the work in the final weeks of rehearsal before Echo Mine opens as a copresentation with the Harris Theater on December 7, 2019.

In Progress is a series of public programs designed to give artists, thinkers, and curators a platform for developing new works, and to give patrons a glimpse into the creative process. In Progress is organized by Curator January Parkos Arnall and Assistant Curator Christy LeMaster with the Performance and Public Practice teams.
