Global Activism: Chicago Danztheater Ensemble

Ellyzabeth Adler is founder and executive director of Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble. The performing arts group, “through innovative, multidisciplinary storytelling...unite[s] varied art media to achieve an all-embracing, radical change in humankind.” Ellyzabeth wrote us that she was so inspired by our Global Activism segment, that she organized her own arts festival of “music, dance, theater, media and art all around activism.” We invited Ellyzabeth to tell us about how she stresses activism in her art, at home and abroad.
