The Evanston Dance Ensemble (EDE) opens its 2015-2016 season on Dec. 11-13 with “The Young Choreographers Project,” featuring choreography from 11 EDE company members and one piece from EDE alum and recent Juilliard graduate Eve Jacobs.

The original choreography is set on fellow EDE members with each choreographer being mentored by a dance professional. Performances will take place in Dance Center Evanston’s (DCE) new dance theater, Studio5, at 1934 Dempster St.    

The second performance of the season is the return of EDE’s production of “Alice in Wonderland,” on March 10-13 at Northwestern University’s Josephine Louis Theatre.

Under the artistic direction of Béa Rashid and Christina Ernst, Lewis Carroll’s classic tale is retold through innovative dance created by many of the top choreographic talents in the Chicago dance community.
