P(art)NERSHIPS is a month-long series for performing artists in Chicago which culminates in a performance open to the public. Each participant has been matched with another artist that they may not know. In just 4 weeks of structured collaboration the partners create a work to show. The experience is fast and challenging, but also exciting. After the show is over, artists have a new collaborator/ the beginnings of their own production and you've enjoyed an unpredictably interesting show!

Gloria Mwez
Gloria Mwez
Gloria Mwez is known for choreography which twists through counter-intuitive shapes, creates eerily exciting stories, and combines several dance genres into cohesive pieces. She’s been a Beverly Arts Center teaching artist, Fear Experiment dance and stepping coach, and a company member with Perceptual Motion Inc., Movement Revolution Dance Crew, Matter Dance Company, Simantikos Dance Chicago, and Modern Marvels. Her experience with so many different performance groups coupled with a love for Chicago led Gloria to create Chicago Untitled Project in 2014. The project facilitates workshops, events, and performances for movement artists and seeks to bolster Chicago’s creative community. The aim is help artists quit their day jobs while converting “non-artists” into dance-lovers. In 2016, Gloria inched closer to that goal when she was voted runner up in the Chicago Reader Poll for best choreographer.
Chicago Untitled Project
Chicago Untitled Project
Chicago Untitled Project is a company that tries to make art fun while making fun art. Helping artist to introduce work even in it\'s "untitled project phase". There are classes, workshops, shows, and many more projects. The goal is to bolster the performance community in Chicago and disrupt some of the dance world status quo. If you love lifeless dance performances, classes and workshops where everyone looks and dances the same and you leave not knowing a single new person, keeping prized resources and performance opportunities as secret as possible, and helping boost the exodus and Chicago talent to the coasts… this might not be your cup of tea. If all that stuff annoys the hell outta you, welcome to Untitled Project. Let’s be friends.
