PERFORMANCES and EVENTS

1. OFF-LEASH AREA’S 2013 GARAGE TOUR BRINGS DANCE THEATER TO SUBURBAN GARAGES - AUGUST 30-OCTOBER 20

Off-Leash Area’s Annual Neighborhood Garage Tour once again brings professional theater and dance to garages in neighborhoods throughout the metro area with a creative, fantastical romp for all ages.  This year’s production, The Picnic, follows the relationship between two mismatched companions, a fastidious Bird and a rambunctious Dog, who meet in a city park and fall in love. The Bird and Dog are brought to life by two dancer-actors, while an eccentric Parks and Recreation groundskeeper paints a fantastical and ever-evolving seasonal landscape around them. The show includes an original full score by innovative jazz trio The Willie August Project, and a quirky poetic text by National Endowment for the Arts fellow Lightsey Darst.

Reservations are encouraged.  For reservations, call 612-724-7372 or reserve online at Eventbrite.  http://garagetour.eventbrite.com

At the Cowles Center, Sept 20-21, 2013 @ 8pm

http://www.thecowlescenter.org/calendar-tickets/joe-chvala-and-flying-foot-forum

Flying Foot Forum is a one-of-a-kind percussive dance company whose mission it is to present percussive dance in as many varied, engaging theatrical ways as possible.  Following their highly acclaimed 20th Anniversary Concert at the Cowles Center, Three and Three gives the Flying Foot Forum audience a peek into their future with three new sections of their next three full-evening projects and revives three of their most successful repertory pieces from various points in their 21-year history.  Included in the program will be a section of their highly anticipated Alice in Wonderland which will premiere in the 2014 Ordway Children's Festival, a new jazz piece by Karla Grotting for their upcoming America Concert and a section of their new participatory work Dancing through the Halls created collaboratively by Joe Chvala and Ukrainian singer Natalie Nowytski.  From the past will come an all-male version of the dangerously edgy Red Walls, Karla Grotting's haunting folk quartet All of One Size and the hilarious classical tap piece--All Creatures Now Are Merry-Minded--a more varied and eclectically entertaining concert would be hard to find.

Three and Three will feature performances by U of MN dance majors participating through the RiCAP program.

7. NORTHROP PRESENTS HUBBARD STREET DANCE CHICAGO - SEPTEMBER 21

Sat, Sep 21, 8:00 pm

State Theatre

Casi-Casa (2009)

Choreography by Mats Ek

Little Mortal Jump (2012)

Choreography by Alejandro Cerrudo

PACOPEPEPLUTO (2011)

Choreography by Alejandro Cerrudo

New Untitled World Premiere (2013)

Choreography by Robyn Mineko Williams

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, one of America’s favorite contemporary companies, celebrates their 36th year with a Minneapolis program including Casi-Casa by famed Swedish master choreographer Mats Ek (whose Swan Lake had Minnesota audiences raving when the Cullberg Ballet performed it here in 2002). Known for its innovative repertoire, Hubbard Street was the first American company to stage this physically and theatrically inventive piece. Casi-Casa fuses jazz and bagpipes with electronic music and rock. Elements of an everyday life are distorted in a surreal landscape that literally tilts, where household items like vacuums occasionally become dance partners. The program also includes two pieces by resident company choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo: Little Mortal Jump, a black-and-white themed piece tailor made to showcase the company’s talent, PACOPEPEPLUTO, a series of three exquisite solos strung together by their vivacious physicality, and a new untitled world premiere from Robyn Mineko Williams.

WORKSHOPS, MASTER CLASSES and INTENSIVES

26. TAPESTRY FOLKDANCE CENTER PRESENTS: WALTZ PALOOZA WITH GERHARDT QUAST

Saturday, September 21 (1 - 5:30 pm)

Sunday, September 22 (noon - 3 pm)

Treat yourself to a weekend to engage with waltz, from the elegance of Strauss to more informal ballroom varieties (plus a bit of Polka!). We'll begin with walking in time to the music, then focus on "matching feet" and rotary (turning) waltz (right-turning) and transitions between rotary and linear. After a brief break, it's rotary waltz, left-turning and transitions from right-turning to left-turning and back, then Polka! (because everyone in Minnesota needs to know how to polka).

Sunday includes a review, cross-step waltz and transitions from linear and rotary to cross-step and back. Each day concludes with open dancing of mostly waltzes, to practice what you've learned and just have fun.

Gerhardt Quast has taught waltzing in Portland, OR, for both Waltz Eclectic and Random Waltz, and in Duluth for the weekly swing dance as well as for Fog City Waltz.

(No pre-registration; pay and register at the door.)

$38 for Tapestry members and $42 nonmembers, (Saturday- only: $25 or Sunday-only: $20)
