Image: Maxine Patronik rehearses on-stage at Chicago Danztheatre. Her body faces front. Maxine appears mid-motion, leaning her body far to her left, stretching her arms toward the floor and the ceiling, and looking up at the ceiling. She balances on her left foot, with her right foot pointed and off the floor. Both knees are slightly bent. Maxine wears a black tank-top and black pants. Photo by Marya Spont-Lemus.
