In "Zer0", chaos is a void defined by the order it lacks.

Crash Dance Productions is a professional, contemporary dance company based in the Twin Cities. Company members work together to conceive, choreograph, and perform in full length productions, while sharing their passion for contemporary dance art with the local community.

In "Princess Ida; or, Castle Adamant", Gilbert satirizes feminism, women's education and Darwinian evolution, which were controversial topics in conservative Victorian England. The operetta is based on a narrative poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, called "The Princess", written in 1847. Gilbert had written a farcical musical play, based on the poem, in 1870, and lifted much of the dialogue of "Princess Ida" directly from his 1870 farce. "Princess Ida" is the only Gilbert and Sullivan opera in three acts and the only one with dialogue in blank verse. Inasmuch as the story of Princess Ida is a fairy tale that satirizes Victorian England, our directors have decided to set it as SteamPunk, that is, science fiction rooted in the technology and culture of the 19th century. This rendering allows us to explore modern images of gender role and identity and still embrace the fantastical story and very Victorian mores of the characters. It also gives great possibilities for costumes and set for this production at Howard Conn Fine Arts Center in Minneapolis. [less-]

Väsen is a Swedish acoustic trio with a singular sound, a playful yet accomplished interplay that seems to defy the laws of physics -- an intensity coupled with a great sense of humor, and modernity rooted in tradition. The parts: a five-string viola of sophisticated symphonic taste, an adventurous 12-string guitar, and a nyckelharpa (a "keyed fiddle") deeply rooted in the traditions of Swedish folk music. It's a tradition spiced with consummate playing skills, but this is more than just a traditional sound. There's a playfulness to their music, a joyousness, and a delight in making exciting new arrangements of centuries-old tunes, and new originals inspired by the tradition. Rock, jazz, traditional and classical influences weave together, making a music that's beautiful but never cloying. Enjoy this concert from Vasen at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis. [less-]
