Ordway Pre-Show Extra

Prior to each World Music & Dance Series performance, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about that evening’s performance genre(s) and topics through lecture, dialogue, and demonstration of a particular art form. The Ordway Extra presenters are primarily Twin Cities-based and have expertise on the evening’s topics, connecting the Main Stage touring performance to the local art scene. The intention of the Extra is not only to educate audiences, but also to engage and recognize local scholars and artists whose work parallels that of the invited national and international performances.
