Giordano Dance Chicago: Enjoy a pre-performance conversation with GDC Artistic Director, Nan Giordano, before witnessing the return of her stunning work, “Taal." In Hindi, Taal means rhythm. Choreographer Nan Giordano creates a unique blend of Indian and jazz dance movement. Eight dancers intertwine with 100 feet of fabric to the music’s beautiful sounds and percussive beats, evoking the look and feel of India. “Taal” was created as a testament to the power, triumph and absolute necessity of surrounding ourselves with beauty, even in the presence of great loss and darkness.
