  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.

    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.

  8. Northrop Presents Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie

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

    On the heels of a sold-out critically acclaimed summer tour, longtime Fleetwood Mac members Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie announce the second leg of their North American tour.

    The collaboration began three years ago, when McVie rejoined Fleetwood Mac for the group’s “On With The Show” tour. The pair went in to record new material prior to rehearsals for the tour and their natural creative chemistry was reignited. According to Buckingham: “We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically. The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, ‘what took us so long?!’” Working their natural singer songwriter skills together came easily for the duo.
    Simply titled LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM/CHRISTINE McVIE, the 10-song album is now available on CD, LP, and all digital and streaming services via Atlantic Records. Sessions for the album took place at The Village Studios in Los Angeles, which is where Fleetwood Mac recorded several of their classic albums, including Tusk. Buckingham and McVie were joined in the studio by fellow bandmates Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, who supplied much of the dynamic rhythmic engine.
