Event Series Event Series: Beyond the Box Performance

Beyond the Box Performance

July 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Beyond the Box, a collaboration between Minnesota Fringe, Vibrant and Safe Downtown and the Downtown Improvement District, is an artist incubation opportunity in public, outdoor performance. Six performances (30-50 minutes) from three selected artists are designed to engage the diverse audiences of downtown Minneapolis and celebrate the reanimation, renewal, and changing relationship to public spaces and take place at Xcel Energy Plaza on Nicollet Avenue.

June 6th and 13th: Say It! Sing It! Play It! In Cherokee (SISIPI) is a musical adventure into the Cherokee language with a Turtle & Wabbit. Through Catchy songs and fun storytelling by Chris Griffith (enrolled Cherokee Nation citizen) with Shari Aronson, audiences will join the quest to help keep alive an endangered Indigenous language.

June 20th and 27th: Atop the Above is a parade celebrating the sky, involving live acoustic music, community participation and large scale cloud puppets. With the understanding that we are part of the intertwining of the natural world, this is an empowerment of the effect we have upon it, and a plea to take care of what we can control. We are nature, and we deserve to celebrate to see beauty in this. Join the cloud parade!

July 11th and 18th: In a climate of uncertainty, Sleepers are seized by nightmares. Desperate, they use the iBaku, a device named after the elephant-like chimera that devours nightmares, stranding them in a dreamless stupor. Now, the Librarian has summoned them to the Library of the Dreamless, in hopes of creating new dreams together. Dreamers, we hope you’ll join us for this workshop performance of the Library of the Dreamless.
