SOLO: Six Dance Films—An Encore Showing
The Cowles Center


Location: Silverwood Park (2500 County Road ESt. Anthony, MN 55421)

The McKnight Fellowships for Dancers’ biannual production, SOLO, pairs six Minnesota dancers with renowned local, national, and international choreographers. This filmed version of the showcase is free, open to the public, and will take place outdoors like a movie in the park, so bring a chair or blanket.

The six dancers are Renée Copeland, Yeniel “Chini” Perez Domenech, Sharon Mansur, Erin Thompson, Joseph “MN Joe” Tran, Elayna Waxse. Each artist is a recipient of a McKnight Dancer Fellowship, an annual award given to three mid-career Minnesota dancers whose work demonstrates artistic excellence. In addition to a $25,000 unrestricted cash award, fellows received additional support and the commission of a new solo from a choreographer of their choosing. The 2021 collaborations range from innovative Hip Hop to contemporary Arab imaginings, to intimate site-specific explorations and more.

SOLO will have Spanish and English captioning throughout the films.
