    CHICAGO (Work #16370) was released to celebrate the US premiere of Martin Creed's first ballet, taking place at MCA Chicago on 15 November 2012. For this performance, Creed and his band were joined by the Sadler Wells dancers from his original London performance. Together they presented Creed's challenging composition using only the five core positions of classical ballet, each paired with a musical note to create a collision of forms, simultaneously familiar in their simplicity yet unusually beguiling in their presentation.
