Two of Minnesota’s dance powerhouses, Black Label Movement and Contempo Physical Dance join forces to produce the Cowles Center’s first ever collaborative dance concert. Highly physical, driving dance is taken to new heights when these two thrilling companies merge their creative processes to offer an unprecedented evening in Minnesota that features two world premieres co-created by both companies. Artistic Directors Marciano Silva dos Santos of Contempo Physical Dance and Carl Flink of Black Label Movement will make and perform a duet for the first premiere, a rare opportunity to see these two nationally recognized artists of diverse artistic aesthetics on stage together. For the second premiere, both choreographers will team together to create an ensemble work blending their intense physicalities with a dynamic cast of movers from both companies. The evening will also include an audience favorite from each company’s repertoire.
