"Mohona: Estuaries of Desire" • Sept. 20-21
A multi-disciplinary, total theater experience, “Mohona” relates stories and layers images of women’s work and lives in relation to water. The performance space is imagined as an estuary – located at the confluence of multiple marine flows, rich in possibilities – where dancers layer breath, movement, and voice to explore the themes.
Created by Ananya Chatterjea in collaboration with Mankwe Ndosi and the dancers of Ananya Dance Theatre. Score by Gregg Schutte in collaboration with Mankwe Ndosi and Pooja Goswami Pavan. Set and costume design by Annie Kastura Rollins.
Tickets: $27, $22, $17; $2 off for seniors and children, and alumni, faculty, and staff of St. Catherine University and University of Minnesota; $10 day of event rush for college and high school students.
