Walker Dance at the Pantages
Each generation has its forward thinkers, those who move an art form ahead by sheer innovation and force of will. The Walker Art Center joins with Hennepin Theatre Trust to look across generations and copresent a series of major new works by three visionary choreographer/directors: David Gordon, a leading force since the 1960s; Ralph Lemon, who has helped push dance in more global and multidisciplinary directions through the 1980s and 1990s; and Jérôme Bel, whose conceptual innovations of the past decade are influencing choreographers on both sides of the Atlantic. Each shares a large-scale theatricality and a rigor of invention that promises to intrigue, challenge, and delight. All performances take place at the beautifully restored Pantages Theatre.
