Resident Artist Tristan Bruns brings a preview performance of MADD Rhythms' Supreme Love to Principle Dance's blue studio Saturday, 8/29!

Jumaane Taylor, named one of the Chicago Tribune's Top 5 Dancers in Chicago, has choreographed this work which is inspired by John Coltrane's album, A Love Supreme. The full length show will premier at the Athenaeum Theatre in September.

Seating is quite limited. Admission is $5. Children may be required to sit on mats on the floor to make room for adults to sit in chairs.

Rather than receiving a printed ticket, your name will be placed on our list of ticket reservations.
