Music of the Baroque and South Chicago Dance Theatre team up for Music & Movement today at 2 PM at Hamilton Park Cultural Center (513 W. 72nd). Two dance works merging the old and new will be presented: the world-premiere choreography by South Chicago Dance Theatre founder and artistic director Kia Smith to dances by 17th-century composer Michael Praetorius, and Wade Schaaf’s “Coéurs Separés” to music by Johann Sebastian Bach. The two companies continue the collaboration with Baroque Heroes, a program exploring the concept of the “hero” in a whimsical fashion with guest conductor Patrick Dupre Quigley. The works of featured composers J.S. Bach, son C.P.E. Bach, Georg Philipp Telemann, and Jean-Philippe Rameau share the bill with Smith’s Praetorious piece. That concert kicks off Sun 10/9, 3 PM, at North Shore Center for the Performing Arts (9501 Skokie Blvd., Skokie) and then moves to the Harris Theater (205 E. Randolph) for a performance Tue 10/11 at 7:30 PM. An on-demand viewing option is available starting 10/14. Today’s performance at Hamilton Park is free, but reservations are suggested; tickets and more information about Baroque Heroes available at baroque.org. (KR)

At 3 PM, the Swedish American Museum (5211 N. Clark) hosts “Irrbloss: Songs from the Poetry of Signe Aurell.” During the early 20th century, Signe Aurell immigrated from Sweden to Minnesota, where she worked as a domestic servant. In 1919, she self-published a series of poems called Irrbloss that describe labor struggles, class anxiety, gender discrimination, and homesickness. In 2019, musicians Maja Heurling and Ola Sandström set some of the poems to music and released it as a record through Kakafon Records. According to the Museum, they blend “folk stylings and the Swedish visa tradition together to underscore the continued relevance and impact of Signe’s words.” Today they’ll be joined by Livet Nord to perform this music. Tickets are $20, and masks are required. (MC)
