MINNESOTA DANCE AND THE ECSTASIES OF INFLUENCES

Minnesota Dance and the Ecstasies of Influences is a lecture series curated by Michèle Steinwald for The Cowles Center, in partnership with Judith Brin Ingber, choreographer, and writer; Cecily Marcus, Curator, and Kathryn Hujda, assistant curator, of the Performing Arts Archives at the University of Minnesota Libraries; Nancy Mason Hauser, videographer, and Linda Shapiro, choreographer and writer, founders of the Minnesota Dance Pioneers Oral History Project. Each panel in the series focuses on artists’ influences as a way to begin unraveling the histories that are part of the Twin Cities dance communities. Launched in fall of 2014, 12 separate events were held at the Cowles Center over its three-year history in the U.S. Bank Atrium. The series will continue at the Ordway in fall of 2017 in partnership with The Cowles Center.
