It’s not so much a trend, perhaps, as a return to the interdisciplinary collaborations that marked the fertile arts scene of the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s. We’re speaking here of dance in museums, or in the case of this event, an art gallery. Nonetheless, anytime Laurie Van Wieren is on the docket (who finally, at long last, was selected in 2018 as a McKnight Choreographer Fellow), it’s a cause for celebration—as well as forays into the silly and cerebral. Here she’s helping launch a new series, Collab, with contributions by collaborators that include an exhibition, a live reading, costumes, and environmental design. The unparalleled Judith Howard, along with Marggie Ogas and Lauren Coleman, accompany Van Wieren on the floor.
