_MOVEments _


Bessie Award winner and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater company dancer dynamo Boykin returns to Minnesota with her “…finely sculpted, expressive movement that challenges both body and mind.” (The Village Voice)

_Art-Inspired Work: _


Fricke/Gagaku and Kodo Drummers of Japan

“Inspired by sculptures of Paul Granlund with flight as a metaphor for our instinctual craving for boldness.” (Wynn Fricke)

_Two Fridas _


“A duet exploring Frida Kahlo’s relationship to pain, limitations and fragility of the body and desires that exist within.” (Wynn Fricke)

_Digging for Clay _


“A contemporary work examining the compelling, enduring and inspired relationship between sculptors Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin.” (Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner)


_Bred in the Bone _

Houlton/Pärt, anonymous

Originally choreographed for MDT in 1997, this piece draws from structured ideas of ritual and repetition playing with the perception of boundaries.
