Back by popular demand, Live @ The Shed, produced by Hatch Dance and HoneyWorks, returns to the Lab Taproom, August 7-8th, 2021. Twenty-six of the Twin Cities most vibrant dancers come together for an outdoor dance event featuring the world premiere of LDV, co-choreographed by Berit Ahlgren and Helen Hatch. Inspired by, and set to the soundtrack of Federico Fellini's 1960 film La Dolce Vita, Ahlgren, Hatch and the ensemble embark on a non-linear joy-ride full of whimsy, sweet optimism and goofy charm, undercut by sinister and cunning moments that ultimately color life. A multi-talented and multi-generational cast bring their energies and experiences together in the creation of this new work. Program begins with works-in-progress presentations from members of the cast.
Featuring Berit Ahlgren, Helen Hatch, Hannah Benditt, Jeremy Benssussan, Judith Brin Ingber, Nicole Brown, Zhauna Franks, Stephanie Grey, Alejandra Iannone, Gemma Isaacson, Juliana Johnson, Jennifer Mack, Samantha Meryhew, Kelli Miles, Da’Rius Malone, Blake Nellis, Yolanda Pauly, Amanda Sachs, Tristen Sanborn, Connor Simone, Rhapsody Striggers, Joe Tennis, Lauren Vasilakos, Elliana Vesely, Genevieve Waterbury, and Scott Willits.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
