Stewart/Owen Dance and Gina Cornejo unleash a genre-bending new show, “DIRTY LAUNDRY” at the Wortham Center for the Performing Arts.

Spectators can prepare to be engrossed in live dance, encircled by multimedia and enthralled by provocative spoken word. The intimate experience tells the story of marriage, divorce and reclamation.

Original writing meets a cringe-worthy yet charming show, featuring seven artists who are surrounded on all sides by live dance and projections.

Stewart/Owen Dance is an award winning, nationally acclaimed dance company that fascinates audiences with stories told through dynamic movement. Co-founders Gavin Stewart and Vanessa Owen’s productions reimagine the audience experience and expand the creative dimensions of performing arts by collaborating with established actors, musicians, poets and filmmakers.

The daughter of a Peruvian mariachi singer and a professional jazz dancer from Chicago, Cornejo’s captivation with the arts began in her bloodline. With an extensive background in the Chicago theater scene and original works featured on Audible and in Teatro Luna (Chicago/LA), she has a distinct ability to stir the souls of her audiences.

Shows are scheduled to run Jan. 21-23 and 28-30. Each performance is limited to 30 seats. Tickets are $27.
