Rosy Simas Danse presents Weave

Music & Movement Series, Ordway Music Theater

In collaboration with The O’Shaughnessy and Ordway

An Ordway co-commission, Native choreographer Rosy Simas (Seneca, Heron Clan) creates Weave, a dance project drawn from the interwoven and interdependent nature of our world. In Weave, individual and embodied stories are the vibrant threads that mesh in a performance woven of story, dance, moving image, and sound.


Community Engagement Spotlight

Weave is being created in residencies at The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts (Minneapolis), McKnight Fellowships Residency at MANCC (Tallahassee), The O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University (St. Paul), and Ordway. Join the artists of Rosy Simas Danse and collaborators for residency and community engagement activities, like the residency below, from June 2018-January 2019.

Free Residency and Engagement Activities at The O’Shaughnessy
