Over the course of 40-plus years, Choreographers’ Evening has offered an exciting range of Minnesota dance reflective of each choreographer/guest curator who frames the evening through a specific lens. This year’s curator, Rosy Simas, selected particular works that “complement each other, dances that reflect the times we live in, and dances that I think will create thought provoking conversation among audiences.”

Featuring Akiko, Erin Drummond, Joelle Fernandez & Frankie Hebres X Al Taw’am, Robert Keo, Paula Mann, Megan Mayer, Crystal Norcross, Laura Selle Virtucio with Holo Lue Choy, Deja Stowers – BLAQ, Taja Will, and Magnolia YSY, the pieces range from humorous to political, from abstract to literal, solos to group work, with choreography rooted in contemporary, hip hop, and improvisational dance aesthetic.

A mainstay in the local dance community, curator Rosy Simas is a celebrated performer, multifaceted choreographer, and respected Native American activist and educator.

“Maybe the most diverse, certainly the most democratic performance you’ll see this year … a tasty evening of the here-and-now in Minnesota dance.” —City Pages
