Momentum: New Dance Works 2007

“The Walker Art Center and Southern Theater both play unique roles in the local art ecology. The Walker propels local artists onto the international stage; the Southern programs the most consistently excellent schedule of local dance. Their partnership, then, on the Momentum: New Dance Works series creates a remarkable platform for presenting local artists here but also nationally and internationally.”–Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

Providing a snapshot of Minnesota’s dance landscape, the always-popular Momentum illuminates the skill and passion of the next generation’s most promising artists. Featuring two companies each evening, Momentum showcases new voices and ideas that speak to the latest combinations in dance while solidifying the Twin Cities as a hotbed of fresh, experimental, and often under-the-radar talent. Each company presents new work co-commissioned by the Walker and the Southern with the support of the Jerome Foundation.
