ARENA Dances

run with me

“densely layered and evocative” - MNArtists.

Mathew Janczewski brings his subtle, rich and viscerally honest choreographic voice to the historic Southern Theater stage for performances by ARENA DANCES. Help send us off for our Fall tours by celebrating some favorites from ARENA’s past and cheering on these stellar performers giving themselves to the physicality and movement ARENA is known for. 

The mission of ARENA DANCES is to make dance accessible to all through the presentation of contemporary dance, educational outreach, and community gatherings to inspire, promote dialogue and diversity. We continually re-draw the boundaries of our work, challenging physical extremes and exploring bodies as they relate to each other and space. The work is abstract in form, giving shape to emotions and exploring the depths and limits of what drives us as humans to connect.

October 28-29th, 7pm
Show run time: approximately 90 minutes
