Ordway Center commissions new work for Concert Hall opening

Ananya Dance Theatre is honored to receive a commission from The Ordway Center for an original, evening-length work as part of Rock The Ordway, a 22-day celebration of the Center’s new Concert Hall in downtown St. Paul.

The performance, “Aahvan: Invoking the Cities,” will be a presentation of the Arts Partnership: The Ordway, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Minnesota Opera, and The Schubert Club, Wednesday, March 11, 2015, at 7:30pm.

Backed by layers of live and recorded music, this epic, full-length dance theater piece exudes extraordinary images that weave together our rich legacy of water, the relationship of our people to the land, the diversity of local communities, and our artistic innovation.
