Each year, three exceptional Minnesota dance artists receive the coveted honor of a McKnight Dancer Fellowship. SOLO celebrates the 2018 and 2019 recipients with new works expressly tailored for these exceptional performers. The result is an evening of six fascinating world premieres. In 2021, these solos exist as dance films. Join us for the in-person screening premiere at The Cowles Center, or find SOLO online via livestream or on-demand showing.

Renée Copeland – Choreographer: Erika Bettin, Italy
