The Dance Department mission is to take dance out of the static classic structure and push it towards more immersive environments, partner with choreographers that create innovative movement, and cross-pollinate different arts to create exciting, immersive work that takes dance to a new level for a millennial audience.
The Inconvenience made the "Best Of The Year" list for TimeOut, being named one of the "Top Ten Places We'd Never Seen a Dance Performance Before".
The Inconvenience plays host to an evening of cabaret-style performances brought together to provoke desire and celebrate the skin you're in.

STANDING ROOM ONLY featured the work of 6 choreographers exploring what makes them move; whether that be from a specific style of music, a connection on the dance floor, or simply that contagious live-concert energy. Musician/Composer John Cicoracollaborated with the choreographers to create original music for each piece- played LIVE with the help of musicians Ryan Murphy, Sean & Pat Cassin and more!
The Fly Honey Show has brought back burlesque, mixed it with elements of musical comedy and cabaret, and presented a spectacular show that celebrates Chicago skin--with class. Directed by Director of Dance, Erin Kilmurray, the evening showcases the talent and fun all to benefit The Inconvenience’s season.
Backed by a band and set and light work from Inconvenience members John Holt and Nic Jones, the pieces range from contemporary movement pieces to full-blown, high-kicking, clothes-shredding ladies with an attitude.
