Oct 2014
About the Event

SOLO and the McKnight Artist Fellowships for Dancers are made possible through the generous support of The McKnight Foundation.

Pre-paid reserved parking for this performance is available for purchase here.

An evening of world premieres by six of the Twin Cities finest dancers, winners of 2012 and 2013 McKnight Dancer Fellowships. 

Each year the McKnight Fellowship Program selects three exceptional dancers to receive a coveted honor: a McKnight Artist Fellowship. In addition to a cash award, they receive a commission for a new solo dance from a choreographer of their choice, who creates a new work tailored expressly for them. The dance fellows awarded in 2012 and 2013 have selected an amazing and eclectic group of national and international choreographers to bring their choreographic imaginations to the Northrop stage. The result is SOLO, an evening of six world premieres - beautiful, fascinating new works that range from Bharatanatyam to intensely physical modern dance to thoughtful and intimate choreographic explorations. Don't miss this watched-for event showcasing truly exceptional talent from the Twin Cities and beyond.

Join us for a Performance Preview on Sat, Oct 4, 6:45 pm in the 4th floor Best Buy Theater and a post-performance discussion from the stage on Sun, Oct 5, following the event.
