Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks Virtual Tour 2020


Dvorak Park

In 1907 during an era of major political reform, the West Park Commission began creating its first three neighborhood parks—including Dvorak Park. Located in the Pilsen community on Chicago’s Lower West Side, Dvorak is the site of many annual community celebrations, including Mexican Independence Day and Fiesta Del Sol, as well as the Día de Los Muertos and We Are Hip Hop Festivals. Visitors enjoy walking paths, baseball fields, a seasonal sports facility, and theater classes through Arts Partner in Residence ElevArte. Pilsen is also home to the celebrated National Museum of Mexican Art.

Clinard Dance

Clinard Dance

Watch Performance  

Founded in 1999, Clinard Dance is pioneering a unique style of flamenco dance that relies heavily on the rhythms, sense of improvisation, and unique isolations in the flamenco body, in a quest for free, spontaneous movement in which the dancer is able to interact with music, visual artists, and text. Their productions are devised through sustained, collaborative inquiry with artists from a range of disciplines and cultural backgrounds. Clinard Dance operates a dance school in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood, as well as outreach programs and a free monthly performance series.
