The Walker Art Center and Southern Theater are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2006 Momentum: New Dance Works commissions. The proposals and work samples were carefully considered by a panel composed of the Southern Theater‘s Jeff Bartlett, Walker Art Center’s Philip Bither, and 2006 ad hoc panelist Kristin Van Loon of HIJACK. The following four artists/companies will be presented at the Southern Theater over two weekends in mid-summer 2006:
Live Action Set & Spaghetti Western String Co.

In this fifth year of the series, applications were numerous and of outstanding quality, making the selection process extremely competitive. We would like to thank all the artists for the time and energy invested in this application process, and congratulate the recipients on their achievement!
