A ‘Nutcracker’-free dance weekend at Kinetic Kitchen

Several emerging dance artists put their work on display this weekend as part of the ongoing Kinetic Kitchen series at Patrick’s Cabaret in Minneapolis.

Sarah LaRose-Holland is the series organizer/producer, and her company Kinetic Evolutions performs a repertory work, “A Touch of Sass,” along with a short dance film and a sextet featuring a coterie of new young dancers.

Local dance artist Cade Holmseth premieres “Just One More. Money.” The work takes a choreographed look at our current recession, how artists are faring and how tough times engendered a greater sense of community.

Jennifer Glaws and her company Jagged Moves present “Loosing … finding sight,” a quartet that explores how sense of touch becomes dominant during blindness. “Strung along by my bones” is reportedly a dynamic dance-to-music piece that takes a journey of discovery.

The Phipps Dance Company, a youth performing group from Hudson, Wis., braves the cold to perform “In The Upper Room,” not Twyla Tharp’s iconic piece merging sneakers and toe shoes, but a lyrical exploration of grace. “Falling Slowly” examines the kinetic process of falling in love.

8 p.m. today and Saturday at Patrick’s Cabaret, 3010 Minnehaha Ave.,  Minneapolis; $8-$10; 612-721-3595; tickets@
