Ladies dance the blues in Neel: Blutopias of Radical Dreaming. "Neel" is Bangla for "blue," a color shaded with several different meanings, from the midnight blue of disappointment and pain to the brilliant azure of limitless "blue skies." Now every hue is captured in this dynamic piece from Ananya Dance Theatre, the leading creator of contemporary Indian dance. Inspired and informed by artistic director Ananya Chatterjea's twin interests in choreography and social justice, Neel embodies the potent dreams of the marginalized in dance that is both original and richly evocative. Ten company dancers give life to Chatterjea's choreography in a performance that blends dance with music, poetry and dramatic set and lighting design. 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.
