Northrop 2017-18 season includes a ballet/hip-hop mashup, collaboration with Zenon


It's schedule announcement season.

Next week, the Guthrie will announce two major musicals to round out the theater's fall/winter lineup. This week Northrop, a major venue for dance in Minneapolis, announced its 2017-18 schedule.

Malpaso Dance Company will be visiting the Twin Cities for the first time. The Havana dance troupe will be performing four dances, including a collaborative piece with Zenon Dance Company, "Coming Home," inspired by baseball.

Four ballet troupes are also on the schedule, including the intriguing Company Wang Ramirez. (The name comes from its founders, German ballet dancer Honji Wang and French b-boy Sébastien Ramirez.) They'll take the stage with Borderline, a piece featuring dance and acrobatic elements.

Season tickets are currently on sale. Individual tickets will become available on June 5.
