ICON SAM: TEMPLE DANCES


  • The Cowles Center for the Performing Arts 528 Hennepin Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55403 United States (map)

I have a moment of an art installation in this amazing, immersive dance experience... "ICON SAM: Temple Dances is an historical, hysterical romp that takes place in the doorways, studios, alleys, and hallways of 528 Hennepin Avenue. Now The Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts, this building has been many things, most notably, a Masonic Temple. The roaming show features choreography by award-winning local dancemakers Wynn Fricke, HIJACK, Lise Houlton, Judith Howard, Judith Brin Ingber, STRONGmovement, Sossy Mechanics, Sally Rousse, and others..."

 Sally Rousse asked me to create something based on my long association with the Masonic Temple on 6th and Hennepin in downtown Minneapolis, formerly Hennepin Center for the Arts now The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts. She gave me a room on the 5th floor where I've staged a tableau in homage to my memory of a performance at James Sewell Ballet Tek Box theater. The performance featured Nicky Coelho dancing in a piece choreographed by Myron Johnson,  The Indestructible Lady Penrose . It knocked my socks off.
