101 Ways to Enter & Exit (Stage Door Left)
Our lives are marked by comings and goings. Sometimes a grand and sweeping entrance – sometimes an abrupt and unexpected exit. Long goodbyes, stumbling onto stage unprepared or shot like a cannon into the unknown. We’ll explore tales that exude humor, sorrow, joy and compassion crafted by guest author, Jennifer Kohnhorst (The
Moth Twin Cities StorySLAM Winner, DPC’s Secrets from the Wide Sky). This theatrical event unfolds with original music by percussionist Andy Miller (UWM Dance Department Music Director), who provides drum rolls to accompany grand entrances and the steady pulse that vibrates through the exuberance of birth, the endurance of life and the ritual and beauty of death. Choreography by Dani Kuepper embodies these extreme moments of lived experience through an intergenerational cast that offer a collective wisdom and diverse
perspective of beginnings and endings.
