Open the Circle is The Era Footwork Crew's new nonprofit devoted to channelling resources into grassroots creative projects in marginalized communities. This event features The Era's work as dancers, choreographers, poets and dance filmmakers. The evening will conclude with a panel discussion about Chicago footwork's history and future, and how footwork relates to the work of Open the Circle - racial justice through the arts. Open the Circle features Jamal "Litebulb" Oliver, Brandon "Chief Manny" Calhoun, Sterling "Steelo" Lofton, Jemal "P-Top" De La Cruz, with films by William "Wills" Glasspiegel, and guest appearances from Kanesha "Murdamomy" Sheridan and Crystal "Queen Crystal" James. *Click HERE for the Chicago Tribune's coverage of The Era Footwork Crew.*
