A new piece featuring two Minnesota artists --- Grammy Award winning jazz pianist Butch Thompson and choreographer Sarah LaRose-Holland. The duo collaborated to present Destination Twin Cities, an impressionistic, time-traveling exploration of neighborhoods, landmarks, people and places that define urban life in Minnesota. Looking at who were we, and who are we today? The performance includes images of Saint Paul's Swede Hollow neighborhood and iconic landmarks like the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis. The audience will revisit the experience of the seedy Hennepin Avenue "strip" where jazz musicians provided the sound track and the counter-cultural antiwar lifestyle that emerged on Minneapolis' West Bank during the 1960s. And, this is just part of the story. Performances at the Lab Theater in Minneapolis Tickets $20 and $30
