Each year three exceptional Minnesota dance artists receive the coveted honor of a McKnight Dancer Fellowship. To celebrate them, we commission a solo dance for each from a choreographer of their selection. The 2016 and 2017 McKnight Dance Fellows have selected an outstanding group of local, national, and international dance artists to bring their choreographic imaginations to new works expressly tailored for these exceptional performers. The result is SOLO, an evening of six fascinating world premieres. The Fellows and their selected choreographers include:

Lisa "MonaLisa" Berman (2016 Dancer Fellow) - Victor Quijada (Montréal)

Chris Hannon (2016 Dancer Fellow) - Gina Patterson (Wyoming)

Herb Johnson III (2017 Dancer Fellow) - Tight Eyez (Las Vegas)

Krista Langberg (2017 Dancer Fellow) - Karen Sherman (Minneapolis)

Sachiko “La Chayí” Nishiuchi (2017 Dancer Fellow) - Pepe Torres, Luis Peña, Angelita Vargas (Spain)

Chitra Vairavan (2016 Dancer Fellow) - Eiko Otake (New York)
