Colleen Thomas examines what we’re made of in new work
Colleen Thomas is tired of seeing people fall into the same old patterns – this inequity has to end, both within the dance field and in society at large. Spurred on by her experience as a mother to two young children and the seemingly endless string of brutal assaults against black people and college women, Thomas’s first evening length work, Her(e) Repetitive Blueprint, questions how we can break from our perceptions of normalcy and begin anew.

In-Pursuit-postcard-frontIn pursuit of happiness, many more stories unfold
What does it mean to be happy? Is it a prize for the present or a dream for the future? For choreographer Anabella Lenzu, the answer comes from multiple sources. In her latest work, In Pursuit of Happiness, the themes of memory, death, disappearance, and hope collide in more ways than we might expect.

The Minnesotans are coming! 
Minneapolis-based dance artist Chris Schlicting is returning to Danspace Project with some of the Twin Cities finest dancers in tow. His work, Stripe Tease, plays with the boundary between spectacle and intimacy, a flirtation that could also be used to describe the performance space at St. Mark’s Church in the Village.
