LEVELdance is a Chicago based contemporary dance company founded by world renowned choreographer, Eddy Ocampo and Chicago based lighting designer, Joshua Paul Weckesser. Ocampo and Weckesser come to this project with over 12 years of combined collaborative experience choreographing and designing dance.

LEVELdance represents a significant new artistic endeavor for both choreographer and designer. Rather than creating work in which the design meets the needs of the choreography, Ocampo and Weckesser aim to create a rich multi-layered environment that contextualizes and steers the direction of the dance. Their product will fully engage the architecture, aesthetic and capacity of the theatre, not simply using dressing and lighting to create a blank slate but creating a fully realized environment of which the dance is one aspect among many.
