“The Momentum Dance series has been an important platform for emerging dancers and choreographers in the Twin Cities for the past decade” - Star Tribune
MNartists.org has described past Momentum performances as representing "the diversity and strength of Twin Cities dance" where a "sense of trained, intentional risk, this shared moment of vulnerability and confidence speaks loudly to the hours and energy that all the choreographers and dancers ... invested to get here."
Momentum is among the most popular platforms of emerging choreographic talent in the Twin Cities. Featuring two new works each evening, the series highlights an exciting next generation of dance creators.
2017's commissioned artists/collaboratives for week 1 are:
Week 1: July 13 – 15, 2017
Fire Drill and Tom Comitta (Los Angeles)
Bill: The Musikill
Performance duo Fire Drill teams up with LA-based sound poet Tom Comitta to deliver Bill: The Musikill, an experimental musical set in a dystopian, post-climate-disaster tech commune. Pushed to the blistering pace of hyper-entertainment from start to finish, this exhausting spectacle measures the human cost of engineered happiness.
Taneber/BLAQ Wall Street
The women who are BLAQ embody celebration in Taneber/BLAQ Wall Street. This is where sisterhood is rooted, home is reflected, and meaning and truths are created. Surrounded by music and a marketplace stocked with food and libations, the act of celebration is welcomed to all.
