chrisschlichting.JPGWhen Minneapolis choreographer Morgan Thorson presents new work, says choreographer and performer Chris Schlichting, it’s an event in the local dance community. Chris says Thorson’s “Spaceholder Festival,” opening at the Red Eye Theater in Minneapolis on Friday, July 20, is an attempt to make a dance work, with its sound, music, set design and bodies moving on stage, into an actual artifact. It runs through July 26.

A deeper look reveals intimate details about Harvey’s life. Harvey’s show, “You Look at Me Like an Emergency” is on the walls of the Minneapolis Photo Center through August 19.

Steinman is giving a farewell concert before he and his wife move to Norway, where his wife is from. One of the main reasons Kevin is leaving is because he has a chronic health condition and can’t afford adequate insurance in the U.S.
