If you’re wondering what some of Chicago’s independent choreographers have been up to during the dark and quiet winter months, scoot over to the Hamlin Park Fieldhouse Thursday or Friday. Lucky Plush is hosting two evenings of new and evolving works by a handful of frequent collaborators. Lisa Gonzales and Darrell Jones perform together their 2009 piece “Traitor” and present separately two premiere works, with Gonzales bringing in guest artists from New York and Darrell continuing his investigation of ritual feminized gestures. Peter Carpenter is also presenting a next chapter in his dance cycle on the subject of abundance in the face of economic scarcity. You’ll also have the chance to peek at Lucky Plush’s progress on a new work to be presented at the MCA in October. They promise a “trailer” version of the piece, which tells the story of a marriage dissolving in favor of other, more cinematic options. (Sharon Hoyer)
