  1. Alonzo King LINES Ballet

    Alonzo King LINES Ballet

    84 Church St SE
    Minneapolis, MN 55455
    Call: (612) 625-6600

    Biophony
    with additional repertory

    Called “riveting” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Alonzo King’s Biophony is a fascinating investigation of life on earth. Created in collaboration with natural soundscape artist Bernie Krause and composer Richard Blackford, the score draws from the rainforests of Borneo, a waterhole in Kenya, the Alaskan tundra, and a meadow high in the Sierra Nevada mountains, echoing animal voices and imprints of habitats in peril. King’s visionary choreography, brought to life by the extraordinary LINES dancers, has an earthy and sensual feeling that imbues classical ballet with new, expressive potential. Dancers crawl, fly, elongate, flutter, and somersault, creating composites of otherworldly creatures.

  2. Company Wang Ramirez

    84 Church St SE
    Minneapolis, MN 55455
    Call: (612) 625-6600

    Borderline

    She’s a dancer raised in Germany by Korean parents, trained in ballet, but fascinated by hip-hop and martial arts. He was born in the south of France and catapulted from gifted b-boy to international dancer and choreographer. Together, Honji Wang and Sébastien Ramirez have created Company Wang Ramirez and they make their Northrop debut with Borderline, a dreamlike work that combines hip-hop, contemporary dance, acrobatics, visual poetry, and the illusion of weightlessness. Aerial rigging allows the dancers new powers of movement, letting them defy gravity as they struggle against the forces of restraint. To original music by lacrymoboy, these stunning technicians burst out flurries of looping, spiraling shapes with fluid control, using each others’ bodies as counterweights, balanced at impossible angles.

    Swan Lake
    with live orchestra

    Houston Ballet, one of America’s most highly-regarded ballet companies, has long been a Northrop audience favorite. They will return with Artistic Director Stanton Welch’s sumptuous production of Swan Lake, performed with a live orchestra playing Tchaikovsky’s emotionally-charged score. Created especially for the company, Welch’s choreography imbues his characters with psychological complexity and gives the work a 21st century pace. One of the greatest love stories in all of classical ballet, Swan Lake tells the story of Odette, a beautiful maiden transformed into a swan by an evil knight, and the Prince who swears his eternal love to her.
