This season marks the return of a MADCO classic: Madcracker! Artistic Director Russ is excited to reprise and reimagine excerpts of the parodic ballet for MADCO’s first annual Madcracker Gala - an annual holiday fundraising gala held at The Luminary, December 7th, 7pm. Patrons will have the chance to celebrate the spirit of the season, support the company, and see excerpts of an old MADCO fan-favorite brought back to life!

Hosted by Lindenwood University, MADCO's Dare to Dance festival will celebrate choreographers from around the St. Louis area and beyond. Participants will have the opportunity to submit their work from September 10th until November 1st, 2023. Those selected will share their work in the festival’s showcase on January 19th or 20th, 2024, 8pm. One talented choreographer will be commissioned by Artistic Director Arianna Russ to create and set a new work for MADCO’s Spring Concert this April. Submissions open now!

The company is proud to continue its partnership with The Luminary with its Spring Concert titled, “Bound,” April 19 & 20, and 26 & 27, 2024, 8pm. In collaboration with The Luminary’s Artistic and Executive Director Kalaija Mallery, Russ plans to challenge the ways in which people think about MADCO. The pair of directors is excited to lean into the experimental and unconventional as dance, sound, and art collide.
