An Experiment for Three Dancers at GAMUT GALLERY
SATURDAY 7:00-10:00 PM (first performance: 8:00 PM)
1006 Marquette Avenue South, Downtown Minneapolis
Free/ Cash donations are requested for refreshments and appreciated for dancers/ gallery.
Three solo performances, choreographed by their dancers -- each with a connection to breakdancing. In the Gamut Gallery tradition of collaboration, each dancer will respond to the visual art of Beyond Structure. In the spirit of the exhibit, artists are encouraged to experiment artistically, with day-to-day constraints removed.
Modern/ African/ Hip-Hop/ Break
Miles is a well known local dancer and choreographer. He teaches dance for Zenon and the hip-hop organization 'Collective' and directs programs for Patrick's Cabaret.
Modern/ East African/ Tae Kwon Do/ Break
Aubrey brings trained dance and artistry to the stages of huge concert and night club events. She was trained in a breadth of disciplines at the Saint Paul Conservatory and has earned a black belt.
Qigong/ Yoga/ Hip-Hop/ Break
Nelson is a yoga instructor and has spent years studying Qigong and Shiatsu. He is a prominent breakdancer in Minneapolis and has performed, incorporating his beat-boxing and Djing, in night clubs, underground venues and restaurants.
Pattern, perspective and spontaneity
unite four painters, in all-new works for Gamut Gallery.
As they step away from constraints of art-for-hire
they also step away from the representational.
In this experiment with abstraction,
one draws inspiration from precision architecture,
another from rusting rail road cars.
Their point of intersection is an unfamiliar sight
to the world we know.
Now... dancers join the experiment!
Contact: Hannah Howard, firstname.lastname@example.org, (612) 720-5720
Join us for the opening reception May 4, 7-11pm or come any time during gallery hours for the month of May.

Nic is an instinctive seeker of beauty who takes inspiration from pop culture and visual art to voice his activism through dance. For eight years James Sewell Ballet has acted as a creative incubator for Lincoln. In 2011 he received a Mcknight fellowship for dance and was named Best Dancer by City Pages, as well as one of the “Artists Who We Love” by MN Monthly Magazine.
This project is important to him not only because it is an artistic challenge but also because it will connect dance with public awareness of GLBT youth issues. Through his inspiration he has teamed with Outfront MN because they provide leadership in moving the state toward the elimination of homophobia and toward full equality for GLBT people, as well as bringing allies into the movement.

Soul Cages – http://soulcages.brownpapertickets.com
Soul Cages captures the cycles of life and death as a journey, rather than an end in itself. At its core, Soul Cages brings to life a deeply thought-provoking philosophy by examining it through the eyes of mythological characters and ordinary people through the disarming simplicity of a child. Soul Cages redefines not just one’s perception of the cycles of life and death, but also redefines the boundaries that tradition has placed on Bharathanatyam.
This is the story of a battle of equals. The strategists at this war are equals in their abilities. Their armies equally matched, and outcomes certain only in uncertainty. In such a universe, when perspectives are lost, a thousand doubts enhance human frailty. YUDH tries to explain that perspective we have lost sight of. There are some wars we fight whether or not we believe in them. This is what we were created for.

The 2013-14 Northrop MOVES Season reflects our tradition of presenting world-class artists, as well as a dedication to work that is fresh and new, and brimming with today’s most innovative ideas.
The season launches with beloved contemporary company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, performing Swedish choreographer Mats Ek’s Casi-Casa. The first Women of Substance event kicks off with the physically explosive piece Blush from Andrea Miller’s Gallim Dance. After wowing Minnesotan audiences with Snow White, Ballet Preljocaj returns with the U.S. premiere of And then, one thousand years of peace. The MN debut of Shanghai Ballet brings to life the storybook ballet The Butterfly Lovers, complete with the company’s trademark precise classical movement. The second Women of Substance performance from Kate Weare Company showcases excerpts from new work, as well as the visually austere and flirtatious Garden. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance returns with FAR, exploring the Age of Enlightenment’s ideas of the mind-body relationship through cognitive science and movement. The MN debut of Royal New Zealand Ballet includes a sampling of this classically trained ballet company’s repertoire. Copresented with Walker Art Center, the season closes with Trisha Brown Dance Company, whose uncontested legacy as a pioneer of postmodern dance is celebrated with this farewell tour of works made for the stage, seen one last time in their original context.
This is the last Northrop MOVES season, as Northrop takes the final steps in the journey back home for the Grand Reopening of Northrop in April 2014.

Subbody Butoh Method was developed by Rhizome Lee, a Japanese Butoh practitioner. “Subbody” means subconscious body. In the subconscious realm, away from the boundary of ego and daily consciousness, our mind and body melt into oneness and create world that is completely different from the daily world. Through various conditioning techniques, a Subbody Butoh practitioner creates movements through exploring the subconscious realm.
Subbody Resonance Butoh Workshop is designed as a pre-requisite for Subbody Butoh Workshop in order to learn the basic conditioning methods and approach of Subbody Butoh Method. The essence of Subbody Method is “Resonance.” As Taoist master Lao-tzu said “Tao can be told is not an eternal Tao,” Resonance is also indescribable. It can only be felt and experienced. Come and experience the power of Resonance!
Subbody Butoh Workshop is a group process and this workshop requires no previous dance experience. Anyone who would like to explore his or her hidden creative potentials is welcome!

Solstice River is a site-specific dance show which takes place at the Minneapolis Stone Arch Bridge. All of our dancers will be placed at various sites around the bridge including building tops, the park, and the levy.
All of our rehearsals will take place on site at the south end of the bridge. Rehearsals will start on May 31 and run until the show on June 15. If you are interested in performing, please email me and I will send the rehearsal schedule and further information.
You can find more info on the event at www.globalwaterdances.org.

Dancers and other performing artists may now begin submitting FY 2014 Artist Initiative grant applications. The deadline to submit applications for this grant program is June 28, 2013. Please note that applications must be submitted before 4:30 p.m. on the day of the deadline.
The Artist Initiative grant program offers funding to support and assist professional Minnesota artists at various stages in their careers by encouraging artistic development, nurturing artistic creativity, and recognizing the contributions of individual artists to the creative environment of the state of Minnesota.
Grants will be awarded for career building and the creative development of artists, in some cases leading to the creation of new work. Specific grant requirements are given in the FY 2014 Artist Initiative Program Overview and Application Instructions, available on the Arts Board Web site: www.arts.state.mn.us
Artist Initiative grants range from $2,000-$10,000.
Individuals who would like to apply for an Arts Board grant need to use WebGrants, an online grants management system. Visit the Arts Board’s home page News section, which provides links to online tutorials on WebGrants registration and use.
Individuals who are not already on the Arts Board’s e-mail distribution list should sign up to ensure that they receive messages with the latest information about grant programs.
