“As a snapshot of a community, Choreographers’ Evening might be the best annual curated event in Minnesota.” —

The Walker’s annual dance showcase celebrates a half century of works by Minnesota choreographers, offering an exciting glimpse into a vibrant and diverse community. For the 50th anniversary of Choreographers’ Evening, guest curators Alanna Morris and Judith Howard offer a program of works that honor and recognize the rich histories, vital contributions, and power of today’s movement innovators.

Featured choreographers for this year’s program are Aloe AoLiu, Romeo Cannady, Colin Edwards and Canaan Mattson, Elizabeth Flinsch, Averie Mitchell-Brown, Alys Ayumi Ogura, Kayla Schiltgen, Kristin Van Loon and J. H. Shuǐ Xiān, and Laurie Van Wieren. Join us for a remarkable evening highlighting the strength and exuberance of Minnesota dance.

The 4 pm performance on November 26 will have ASL interpretation.

Assistive-listening devices are available at the box office. Please contact us at least two weeks in advance for ASL interpretation, audio description, and CART captioning to allow time to schedule these services.
