The Minnesota Dance Collaborative reinterprets classic works of art through the mediums of music and movement in Vivify -- A Still Life in Motion.

You Are Here Aug 24 - Aug 27, 2017  
The Lab Theater You Are Here
 
Minneapolis-based crash.dance.productions. presents You Are Here at The Lab Theater. Inspired by the principles of phenomenology, universal laws, existentialism and determinism, the dance work seeks to identify the fleeting, reflective conscious as viewed through the lenses of past and future. If the universe is absolute, and time is independent, consciousness becomes the process by which we assign meaning to the world around us. But time moves both ways, turning even a moment of awareness into a web of then and now, of here and there. Ponder these heady ideas as they're brought to life through modern dance.
