Famed for their contemporary dance theater pieces that mix impeccable technique with beauty and biting wit, the award-winning Shapiro & Smith Dance premiere a new piece and bring back a pair of favorites from their acclaimed repertory for their latest performance. They'll debut Narcissus, which utilizes a series of mirrors to explore our current digital and real-life preoccupation with selfies and ourselves. Artistic director Joanie Smith created the work, featuring music by Soozie Tyrell of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band and New York composer Scott Killian. Also on the program are Dance With Two Army Blankets and What Dark/Falling Into Light. Learn More

Mr. & Mrs. Salvador Dali invite you to share in a 5-course Dalinian dance conquest of the palate. Dali’s Cookbook is a once-in-a-lifetime creative mash-up prepared and served by Susana diPalma of Zorongo Flamenco, and Myron Johnson and Robert Skafte of Ballet of the Dolls. This original work is based on the cookbook written by Salvador Dali, entitled_ Les Diners de Gala_, a play on the name of his lover. The now out-of-print book contains recipes for everything from shellfish to aphrodisiacs to vegetables to desserts. Look for a similar variety of surreal dance and music from these masters of glamorous (and sometimes absurd) dance theatre.
Ballet of the Dolls was created in 1986 by esteemed choreographer Myron Johnson. Providing the Twin Cities with its first year-round dance-theater program, the company immediately filled a unique niche in the arts community, offering intimate and innovative professional dance-theater performances that appeal to both dance and theater audiences.
Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre is the Twin Cities’ premiere flamenco theater. Since 1982, Artistic Director Susana di Palma has been bringing the traditions of authentic Spanish flamenco to Minnesota. In addition to teaching regular flamenco classes, di Palma has developed and performed several major works of flamenco-based theater, at venues including the Southern Theater, the Ritz Theater, and the Walker Arts Center. Currently she is touring a children’s play with puppets, funded by a COMPAS grant, called “Tra Ti Ti Tran Tran Toro” about a Spanish bull who feels lonely after moving to Minnesota. Zorongo was also the recipient of a Legacy fund tour grant for a flamenco tour of outstate Minnesota beginning in November, 2011.
