Award-winning choreographers Mad King Thomas (Tara King, Theresa Madaus and Monica Thomas) and playwright Justin Maxwell present a one-night-only immersive dance-theater work in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden as part of the Walker’s Open Field.
Inspired by the fairly ridiculous tale of Violet Jessop, who survived the sinkings of the HMS Titanic and the HMS Brittanic, The Weather is Always Perfect steers a perfect, unsinkable play into the
dark, murky waters of fate, preparedness, dentistry and grammatical constructions.
It’s an evening for mysterious participation, for seeing where your luck takes you.
Please bring a flashlight. Meet below the big yellow pedestrian bridge in the Sculpture Garden.

6. OH CHRIST/ SABOTAGE AT THE MN FRINGE FESTIVAL- AUGUST 1-9
My Only Option was SABOTAGE is a work-in-progress from choreographer Taja Will. It begins with the apple of knowledge, a more-than-mammal less-than-human response to survival of the fittest, confused with constructions of patriotic allegiance and throughout demonstrations of questionable trust and competition. The question being, am I stronger alone? Or are we stronger together? Featuring MN performers Kari Mosel, Heather Klopchin, Kathleen Pender, Emily Ban, and the wordsmith and musician Tyler Nelson.
Elizabeth June Bergman performs her new solo Oh Christ/ Masturbatory Dance, a darkly comedic performance about the absurdity of heartbreak, narcissism, devotion, and virtuosity.

Dance class derived from Deborah Jinza Thayer’s movement therapy work that addresses the integrity of the physical structure.
It begins with gentle and slow somatic-based floor work functioning to re-pattern the body.
This class is designed to counteract dancers' compensation patterns and coping mechanisms that lead to chronic pain, imbalances and/or inability to move freely.
The intention is to find underlying support that precedes movement before challenging it to “perform”.
The class builds to include large complex phrases that will both physically satisfy the professional dancer in a process that re-balances the body and promotes ease, efficiency, and strength.
