Fall Forward Festival at The Cowles Center - November 19 to November 20

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 Four: November 19-20

In a suite of solos, acclaimed Bharatanatyam soloist Aparna Ramaswamy (Co-Artistic Director, Ragamala Dance Company) explores her layered aesthetic to bring together lineage, rigor, cultural wisdom, and imagination.

HIJACK experiments with cohabitation, living in a garden of animated artificial plants created by sculptor Rachel Youn, dancing with the flowers and for them.

In-person tickets are $25. Click here to learn more about each weekend and get tickets!
