About Us!

The Mordine Legacy Project is preserving performance, choreography, and repertoire of Mordine and Company Dance Theater, founded in Chicago,IL by Shirley Mordine in 1969. Mordine & Co is known for its interdisciplinary collaborations with artists in the fields of music, theater, visual design, video and puppetry.  Mordine & Co. strives to infuse the field of dance with new modes of performance and expression.  Praised for original choreography combining wit and sheer movement with technical sophistication, the Company's work has been described as "a two-edged sword of comedy and drama" and "adventurous, audacious, gutsy, and energetic."

 Our archives included over 50 years of creative contribution and collaboration including choreography, music and production design and dancer alumnus performances.  Mordine strived on creating space for new upcoming artist to present their work and receive feedback, as part of the Mordine Mentorship Program.  In that same spirit, Mordine Legacy Project will provided space for new work and new collaborations to be created, in addition to presenting original work; re staged and re imagine for all to enjoy.
