Merges in March

In dedication to building new audiences and in continued pursuit of innovation and engagement, The Cowles Center created MERGE, a program that pairs two local dance companies/artists to collaborate together on a full-length evening performance. This approach fosters inter-organizational collaboration in the dance community and cross-pollinates audiences, introducing both audiences and artists to new ideas.

New to our 2019/20 season, MERGES IN MARCH expands on our program to facilitate multiple nights of inter-disciplinary and ground-breaking performances.
