Happydog performance company was formed when three artists—Chicago-based designer Annie Novotny, Portland-based choreographer Muffie Connelly and New York dancer Leslie Cuyjet—embarked on a tri-coastal creative project. They founded Happydog Gallery in Wicker Park as incubator space and began a process of creative exchange from afar, crafting performance works that evolve over months of collaboration, unbounded by genre or medium. Their newest work, “LADY PARTS,” is part two in a trilogy about human reproduction from a feminine perspective. They share the bill with Khecari, which presents two works: Jonathan Meyer’s male duet “Esther & the Omphali” and “Orders from the Horse,” a new improvisatory duet-in-progress between Meyer and his collaborative partner Julia Rae Antonick.
