Minnesota Dance Theatre to present two weekends of new and rep work

“Enduring Prescience” is the title of Minnesota Dance Theatre’s two-weekend, two-program concert at the Lab Theater this weekend and next.

Both programs include works by Elisa Monte, “Tears Rolling” (2003) and “White Dragon,” a MDT premiere; founder Loyce Houlton’s “Boccherini Dances, 293.6”; artistic director Lise Houlton’s “Sidetracks”; and an excerpt from “Rumblings” with Tom Linker on piano and Jeff King on sax; and guest artists Matthew Stewart and Courtney Elizabeth of the San Francisco Ballet performing the pas de deux from Anthony Tudor’s “Leaves Are Fading.”

Not enough? Program A, this weekend, includes the new work, “From Here to There,” by New York-based choreographer Emery LeCrone, set to music by the Xerophonics and Ray Charles. And Program B showcases company dancer Justin Leaf’s “Some Goddess in Another Body,” his second work for MDT. For his new work, Leaf commissioned a piano piece from New York composer Brad Crane.
