TU Dance Fall Concert: November 21-23, 2014

The O’Shaughnessy, Saint Paul, Minnesota | Tickets
Join us at The O’Shaughnessy in Saint Paul for the opening of our 11th performance season with a fall dance concert featuring current choreographic perspectives from St. Paul, New York and Reykjavik. The evening includes a world premiere by Icelandic choreographer Katrin Hall, specially commissioned by The O’Shaughnessy—a work that explores the essential need for space through Hall’s distinctively contemporary lens. Also on the program is Uri Sands’ One (2013), a work for eight women which pays tribute to Henrietta Lacks and the HeLa cell; and If and Or (2013), a vibrant full-company work choreographed by Dwight Rhoden of Complexions Contemporary Ballet.
