The Fly Honey Show 2013 Is sexy back? Did it ever leave? The Fly Honey Show will answer these Q's. Mary Williamson and the Inconvenience Project host this late-night variety show of interdisciplinary artists, who boast super-star talents. The burlesque-dancing Fly Homies (the gents) and Fly Honeys (the ladies) saunter about in their skivvies for your viewing pleasure, with the Fly Honey Band jamming all night long with special guests. Go for the righteous tunes; stay for the seductive striptease. Old Style brews run aplenty during the five non-stop hours of unsupervised tomfoolery. Chopin Theatre. August 1–3, 10pm. $20–$50.

a canary torsi | Yanira Castro: Paradis The outdoor performance/audio installation premiered at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in 2011 and sold out during a remount in 2012 with New York Live Arts. It comes complete with live piano music and showcases a canary torsi's deft proclivity for understated nuance. See it at Garfield Park during twilight hours. Garfield Park Conservatory. August 6–8, 8pm. Free.

Produce 2013
Lauren Warnecke’s third-year dance Mad Lib prompts participating artists, such as dancers and musicians, to collaborate using respective bits of original works, unpredictable themes and audience recommendations. It often yields many thought-provoking, surprising and oddball medleys of song and dance. At the very least, it’ll be something entirely original, guaranteed. Signal Ensemble Theatre. August 9, 10 at 7:30pm. $8.

Dance for Life The annual HIV/AIDS benefit welcomes many homegrown giants, including members of Hubbard Street, the Joffrey, Giordano Dance Chicago and River North. Expect premieres from Chicago stalwart choreographers Randy Duncan and Harrison McEldowney, per tradition. Auditorium Theatre. August 17 at 8pm. $50–$75.

Chicago Dancing Festival
Bigger is better (at least in this case). One of the year’s most anticipated events, the star-studded dance festival invites the country’s best to take part in four days of free, entirely accessible performances at Chicago’s biggest performance venues. Some of this year’s national guests: Philadanco dance company, the Brian Brooks Moving Company and Brooklyn Mack of the Washington Ballet.  August 20–24. Times and locations vary. Ticket prices vary.
