The Walker offers Twin Cities audiences some of the most original, daring, and unforgettable live performing art experiences available anywhere in the world. Many of these projects share a joyous disregard of standard artistic disciplinary boundaries—jazz composers collaborate with filmmakers, dancers join puppeteers, theater artists integrate film into their pieces, and choreographers create “living installations” in a gallery.
The season features a five-part Adventures in New Puppetry series, showcasing virtuosic works from South Africa, Latvia, Canada, England, and Minnesota. This year’s celebrated Out There festival of alternative performance features a full spectrum of thrilling work drawn from across Europe. Join us to welcome the return of acclaimed artists Ralph Lemon, Eiko & Koma, the Kronos Quartet, Gob Squad, and Improbable Theatre as well as many voices from across the world new to Minnesota.
