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

This was my first visit to the Cowles Center. It's very nice. The 4 different dance pieces in the Fall Rep were all very different from each other. The variety was amazing. The classical ballet was beautiful. The modern dance piece was unique, curious, charming and funny. The Gregory Hines tribute piece was very....Gregory Hines.
