Outdoor Dances
Minnesota Dance and the Ecstasies of Influences (part 6)

with BodyCartography Project, Concrete Farm, Marylee Hardenbergh, Judith Howard, Patrick Scully, and Pramila Vasudevan

Minnesota is home to more than 10,000 lakes and countless other natural resources. These environmental treasures inspire dances created for the outdoors and performed in dramatic settings, both rural and urban. Choreographic approaches are as varied as our landscapes and waterways.

Purpose

The energies behind creating The Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts began decades ago with the determination of artists and supporters to build numerous opportunities for dance everywhere in the Twin Cities. The local dance communities have grown organically as the cities have expanded and new ideas and peoples have entered the scene. This series is a collective remembering and a way to draw on our past as a means of envisioning our future.

Partnership

This series is curated by Michèle Steinwald for The Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts, in partnership with Judith Brin Ingber, choreographer and writer; Cecily Marcus, curator of the Performing Arts Archives at the University of Minnesota Libraries; Nancy Mason Hauser, videographer, and Linda Shapiro, choreographer and writer, founders of the Minnesota Dance Pioneers Oral History Project.

Program support provided by The Performing Arts Archives at the University of Minnesota Libraries
