As we mentioned — we had “special TBA” guests that we were adding to our MN PREMIERE screening of GIRL WALK // ALL DAY at First Avenue on June 15th. We are very excited and proud to announce that dancers from the local talented troupe of ARENA DANCES will be doing a very special performance after the 1st screening this evening!
Founded in 1995 by Mathew Janczewski, ARENA’s mission is to create and perform original choreography by Janczewski and to promote understanding and appreciation of modern dance. ARENA is one of the area’s premiere modern dance companies.
Reviewing for MNARTISTS.ORG, Lightsey Darst called Janczewski’s work “…physically brilliant yet emotionally intimate, dramatic, widely varied, witty and heartfelt.”
In addition to performing nationally and internationally, the company conducts residencies in schools throughout Minnesota. In 2008, Dance Magazine named Janczewski and ARENA as one of its “25 to Watch”.
ARENA DANCES, resides in the newly renovated The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts.
