TU Dance Spring Dance Concert – April 17-19, 2015
The Cowles Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota | Tickets
The 2015 spring concert features The More Things Change, a world premiere work by choreographer Uri Sands honoring Marian Anderson, the celebrated American contralto who was breaking barriers for African-American artists decades before the civil rights movement. The program also features favorites from the company’s repertory, including the reprise of an audience favorite, For You (2007), centered on the experience of an intense rapport between the performers, a gracious host and a surprise guest who enters a space of trust and generosity. In Keep the Edges Wild (2013), New York choreographer Gregory Dolbashian conveys a fluid vision of urban life– a signature hybrid of hip-hop and contemporary movement which is “distinct and highly relevant for the 21st century” (Caroline Palmer, StarTribune). Uri Sands’ full-company work, Hikari (2014), rounds out the program. Originally commissioned by the Ordway Center for its TU Dance 10th anniversary concert, Hikari is an immersive exploration of light, created in collaboration with print artist Hiroki Morinoue.
