The Fall Forward Festival is a month-long festival of shared evening performances celebrating the incredibly talented and robust Minnesota dance community. New dance audiences will experience a sampler of genres in one sitting, while avid dance-goers will see their favorite artists alongside equally stellar new-to-them artists. Each weekend features a new roster and a variety of experiences from new work commissions and Cowles stage debuts to community favorites and Cowles Center veterans.
Week Two features Threads Dance Project and Atlantis13.
Altantis13 brings together dancers from around the black diaspora to explore how we can choose inner peace in an imperfect world intent on our destruction. Threads Dance Project explores the potentialities of a new embodied abolitionist movement and the idea that one person, one act can abolish societal ills and move us towards instead of away from one another.
