Ananya Dance Theatre to Present BLUE DREAM JOURNEYS at Northern Spark Festival, 6/14-15
Blue Dream Journeys is an audience-participatory performance that will begin outside Northrop at the University of Minnesota and culminate inside the Hubbard Broadcasting Rehearsal Studio.
Performances featuring Ananya Dance Theatre, guest artists and live musicians will happen every hour, beginning on the hour, from 9pm to 1am.
Audiences are invited to join with performers in moving through a labyrinth of reflection that begins on the David M. Lilly Plaza outside Northrop Auditorium and wends its way into the building to arrive beneath designer Jack Becker's cloudscape installation in the Hubbard Broadcasting Rehearsal Studio. There, the performers and their community of witnesses will celebrate their imagined dreams through dance and live music curated by Greg Schutte.
Inspired by stories of women's aspirations to achieve daunting dreams, Blue Dream Journeys moves metaphorically from the midnight blues of past pain and lost hope towards the red-tinged blues of a future dawn where dreams become manifest.
Northrop Auditorium is located at 84 Church Street SE, Minneapolis MN. Blue Dream Journeys is supported by an Imagine Fund Special Events Grant.
Blue Dream Journeys is presented by Ananya Dance Theatre as part of Northern Spark 2014, produced by Northern Lights.mn.
