Twin Cities Dance Showcase: 2 NITE ONLY Showcase

Daily from Sept. 5-6
7:30 p.m. , 8:20 p.m. and 9:25 p.m.

To celebrate the amazing diversity of dance styles and movement practices in the Twin Cities during the annual Arts Midwest Conference, seven local companies are presenting samples of their work in one dynamic showcase. In an excerpt from “Morituri te Salutant,” Black Label Movement rocks the stage with physical derring-do along with live animations by Paul Herwig. Brownbody, which singularly merges black history and figure skating in examinations of power dynamics, takes to the stage with work that cultivates awareness. Queerness infuses April Sellers’ deconstruction of national identity in “Patriot Erectors.” BRKFST Dance Company, Shapiro & Smith, ARENA Dances, and Ballet Co. Laboratory also add their singular choreography to the mix. See it all at the Tek Box space at Cowles.
