Butch Thompson & Sarah LaRose-Holland

"Destination Twin Cities"

at The Lab Theater

Minneapolis, MN

June 14 - 15, 2013


Two Minnesota artists -- choreographer Sarah LaRose-Holland and jazz pianist Butch Thompson  have collaborated to present "Destination Twin Cities," an impressionistic, time-traveling exploration of neighborhoods, landmarks, people and places that define urban life in Minnesota. Who were we, and who are we today? 

The performance includes images of Saint Paul's Swede Hollow neighborhood and iconic landmarks like the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis. Revisit the experience of the seedy Hennepin Avenue "strip" where jazz musicians provided the sound track and the counter-cultural antiwar lifestyle that emerged on Minneapolis' West Bank during the 1960s. This is just part of the story. 

"Destination Twin Cities" features Sarah LaRose-Holland's dynamically engaging dance company Kinetic Evolutions and renowned Grammy Award winning jazz pianist Butch Thompson. Performances are set for 7:30PM on Friday June 14th and 2PM and 7:30PM on Saturday June 15th at The Lab Theater in Minneapolis' warehouse district.

(a Sandbox Theatre production)


Inspired by Sandbox Theatre’s research on Beatnik Giselle, they decided to see how far poets and dancers could take their work together.  Sandbox sent out a simple call to poets, asking for the work they felt best expressed themselves.  Sandbox received over 270 entries from around the country and selected 12 poets whose work they felt could be turned into movement.  Now Sandbox has handed that work over to choreographers from the Twin Cities with only two instructions: (1) The entire poem must be heard or seen by the audience; and (2) the dance can last no longer than 5 minutes.  It’s a bold experiment, and we’re hoping for surprises.

Kinetic Evolutions is thrilled to be collaborating with the Grammy Award winning pianist and looks forward to their next live performance with Butch Thompson in 2013. The dance company will also premiere a new work created for performance this October at the Southern Theater with the Sandbox Theatre.  Kinetic Evolutions will also share an excerpt from their production of Going to the Soirée that debuted in 2011 at the Minnesota Fringe Festival and at Old Arizona Center for Performing Arts. Excerpts from Going to the Soirée were auditioned and chosen to be a part of this year’s Renovate performance at the Ritz Theater. The production of Going to the Soirée was made possible, in part, by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4th, 2008.

Kinetic Kitchen is a dance series produced by Sarah LaRose-Holland that showcases professional choreographers and dance companies at Patrick’s Cabaret. Please note that the Friday show will be different from the Saturday show. This is a new model starting this year in 2012. Since we can only do a few weekends of Kinetic Kitchen shows in 2012, we’re doing a different performance every night that we have a show. This way I can get through the long waiting list I’ve had and give choreographers a chance to perform in 2012. Performances take place a few times per year and generally showcase four or five choreographers in a given performance.
