Stone Soup - Apr 21 - May 21, 2017

 

The classic folktale of the feared strangers who inspire a whole community through the use of one little stone charms its way onto our main stage this spring in a world premiere musical. When war-weary foreigners arrive in the village square, fear and suspicion reign. But as the outsiders start to make soup out of a stone, each of the locals is prompted to contribute to the ever-growing, communal meal. Come share this ageless story with us as it serves up a delightfully poignant reminder that community is built one ingredient at a time.

Edward McPherson presents "The History of the Future

Magers & Quinn

  • Storytelling

"The History of the Future is a centripetal volume: a collection of essays that converge where place, past, and future overlap, and which bring together the popular, the personal, and the political. Edward McPherson’s meditations on the United States—from its soaring, vulnerable architecture to its deep underground tunnels—are bracing in their acknowledgment of what’s been lost to time and his anxieties about what’s ahead. This is a smart and beautifully written book about America.”—Rebecca Traister

What does it mean to think about Dallas in relationship to Dallas? In The History of the Future, McPherson reexamines American places and the space between history, experience, and myth. Private streets, racism, and the St. Louis World’s Fair; fracking for oil and digging for dinosaurs in North Dakota boomtowns—Americana slides into apocalypse in these essays, revealing us to ourselves.
--
Edward McPherson is the author of two previous books: Buster Keaton: Tempest in a Flat Hat (Faber & Faber) and The Backwash Squeeze and Other Improbable Feats (HarperCollins). He has written for the New York Times Magazine, the Paris Review, Tin House, and the American Scholar, among others. He has received a Pushcart Prize, the Gulf Coast Prize in Fiction, a Minnesota State Arts Board grant, and the Gesell Award from the University of Minnesota, where he received his MFA. He teaches creative writing at Washington University in St. Louis.

Robin Stiehm’s Dancing People Company will be performing four dances which are a small representation of the many pieces Robin has created in almost 30 years of choreographing. The common thread through these four pieces is a yearning, or perhaps a struggle, through which the dancers find a resolve and a greater connection to each other. Illustrating the beauty and poignancy of human connection has always been a driving force in Robin’s work. Her language embraces clear structure and utilizes a rare musicality. Join Robin Stiehm in a special workshop class on Tuesday, May 2 from 11:00am – 2:00pm.

(untitled) expands SuperGroup’s research into duplicitous action. Combining a simple, clear movement structure with an absurd, realistic living room drama, SuperGroup asks how we keep being with each other and how we make meaning in the in-between spaces: between body and words, between present and future, between cognitive and somatic, between us and you and us and us and you and you.

GIRL SHAKES LOOSE
Directed by May Adrales

Why is it so hard to grow up? GIRL is a good girl: smart, beautiful, and a little rebellious, or, as her family would say, “hard-headed.” For the most part, she has played by the rules, finishing college and then graduate school. She is perfectly poised for success, but something is in her way. Floundering in love, life, and career, GIRL goes on a journey to discover what she’s missing, but wherever she goes, there she is. Eventually, GIRL learns that what she’s seeking is herself: powerful, grounded, and so much stronger than she thought. A groundbreaking new musical by Zakiyyah Alexander and Imani Uzuri, GIRL Shakes Loose is the soulful story of one woman’s search for herself. Featuring the lush poetry of Sonia Sanchez and a stirring original score, you won’t want to miss this world premiere. Brimming with hope, humor, and headstrong passion, you’ll cheer GIRL on, remembering your own journey along the way.

"A splendid, intelligent musical... It's all you can hope for in children's theatre. But the best surprise is that this show is the most adult new musical of the season." – USA Today

Based on the beloved children's book, The Secret Garden is a musical telling of a classic Victorian story. Eleven year-old orphan Mary Lennox is taken to live at the estate of her reclusive uncle Archibald. A deep melancholy pervades the house and its overgrown grounds, but Mary's youthful spirit leads her to find beauty and joy in the place. An enthralling show for adults and a perfect introduction to "grown-up" theater for children, The Secret Garden is a story of spring, renewal, and the happiness a young girl can nurture when she is determined to make things grow.

During ARENA’s ARTshare residency, ARENA is proud to present the works of SuperGroup, and Robin Stiehm’s Dancing People Company." Mathew Janczewski, ARENA Dances artistic director.

ARENA DANCES will perform Picturing That Day, an unassuming quintet that is a sensory experience inspired by cruise ship entertainment, with artwork of Jim Hodges, and the music of George Gershwin and Irving Berlin.

“Mathew Janczewski’s choreography is beloved for its elegant construction, formal intelligence, and lush grace. In the most classical sense, his work is beautiful.” – Star Tribune

Robin Stiehm’s Dancing People Company will be performing four dances which are a small representation of the many pieces Robin has created in almost 30 years of choreographing. The common thread through these four pieces is a yearning, or perhaps a struggle, through which the dancers find a resolve and a greater connection to each other. Illustrating the beauty and poignancy of human connection has always been a driving force in Robin’s work. Her language embraces clear structure and utilizes a rare musicality. Join Robin Stiehm in a special workshop class on Tuesday, May 2 from 11:00am – 2:00pm.

(untitled) expands SuperGroup’s research into duplicitous action. Combining a simple, clear movement structure with an absurd, realistic living room drama, SuperGroup asks how we keep being with each other and how we make meaning in the in-between spaces: between body and words, between present and future, between cognitive and somatic, between us and you and us and us and you and you. Join SuperGroup for a workshop on Wednesday, May 3 from 11:00am – 2:00pm.
