Collide Theatrical Dance Company
Collide Theatrical Dance Company presents its first original musical, SKOL!
When a mysterious illness befalls a Viking clan, a young woman is called to fulfill her destiny as a great warrior leader in a battle for the cure with the Christian army. Inspired by the Norse gods, her journey tests the boundaries of her faith, shakes the ground of the relationships with the men dearest in her life, and causes her to question the definition of female strength. Inspired by recent evidence of the grave of a female Viking holding the accouterments and injury marks of a prestigious warrior, a discovery that cast a new light on gender roles in Scandinavian history.
Collide tells the story through its signature blend of high-energy dance styles and explores this fascinating story with an original pop rock/rap score composed by Twin Cities musician Mike Michel (Bill Mike Band), with lyrics by vocalists Rush Benson (Ordway) and Katie Gearty (Dakota Jazz Club). The production, directed by Collide Artistic Director Regina Peluso, features choreography by Heather Brockman (Ballet of the Dolls), Kyle Weiler (Hamilton National Tour), Peluso, and Benson.
SKOL! features Renee Guittar (Chanhassen Dinner Theater) as the Viking warrior, Lagertha. Cast includes Jarod Boltjes, Patrick Jeffrey, Michael Mossucco, Javan Mngrezzo, Nathan Huberty, James Delage, Ben Siglin, Michaela Borowski, and Grace Kidder.
