MINNEAPOLIS // August 22, 2019 – Members of the Twin Cities dance community, including dancers from local contemporary company TU Dance, will perform an improv series within Gamut Gallery on Thursday, August 22 in conjunction with the closing night of John Foster’s first-ever solo exhibit, Shimmer.
Artistic ambitions collide as movement brings objects to life in this existential exploration of light, color and reflection. The juxtaposition of Foster’s kaleidoscopic geometry matched with the immediate proximity of improvisational dance will make for an experience that bridges two different corners of the local artistic landscape – providing two different interpretations of the same world.
“I think the combination of John’s work and the response we have planned will make for an interesting display that adds yet another dimension to his artwork,” says Amanda Sachs, one of the participating TU Dance members. “Just like some of the pieces in Shimmer, improv can embody varying textures and can represent meaning that is both direct and abstract. Your perspective defines what’s a contradiction or a similarity, and an interpretation is often
dependent on what it’s in relation to.”
EXHIBIT FINALE DANCE PERFORMANCE
Thursday August 22nd, Doors 7pm // $10 presale, $13 at the door

evening, followed by Q and A.
