“Fierce, exhilarating dancemaking.” —Star Tribune
The intricately layered percussive footwork of the Flying Foot Forum, the driving industrial rhythms of music by Savage Aural Hotbed, and the unearthly vocals of Ruth MacKenzie stir up a rich and resounding theatrical brew. A reworking and expansion of the Flying Foot Forum’s 1995 signature work Mjøllnir, Between the Fire and Ice is more timely than ever. Grounded in ancient Nordic and Teutonic lore, it visits a subconscious realm where our modern world collides with pagan antiquity. This powerful explosion of mythic archetypes and darkly spectacular images addresses issues of survival, greed, and global imbalance. Commissioned by the Walker Art Center.
