We went to a weekend show, and they have parking arranged in the lot across the street from the Ritz Theater. Follow to the signs through the first lot to the back lot.

Description

Zenon Dance Company—the modern- and jazz-dance repertory company renowned for its artistic virtuosity, emotional intelligence and inspired excellence—celebrates its 28th Spring Season.

The program includes three premieres:

New York choreographer Kyle Abraham’s “My Quarreling Heart” is a full-company work set to music by Ben Frost and Pan Sonic. Abraham has received tremendous accolades and awards for his dancing and choreography, including Dance Magazine’s coveted 25 to Watch in 2009, a Jerome Foundation Travel and Study Grant 2008, and a Pennsylvania Council for the Arts Fellowship in 2002.

Uri Sands, a St. Paul choreographer and the co-founder of TU Dance, premieres his second work for Zenon: a duet to music by Bon Iver and Kid Cudi. Stephen Schroeder and Mary Ann Bradley will alternate with Bryan Godbout and Leslie O’Neill during the work’s performance.

Minneapolis choreographer Wynn Fricke premieres her seventh work for Zenon, a women’s duet entitled “My Very Empty Mouth.” Set to music by David Lang, the duet features Tamara Ober (winner of Metro magazine’s 3rd Annual Keeper Awards in January 2011, for “an innovative creative talent”) and Laura Selle Virtucio.

Repertory on the program includes the reprise of Sydney Skybetter’s “The Laws of Falling Bodies” and Danny Buraczeski’s “Elegant Echoes.”
