About the Show:
Danceworks Performance MKE and Milwaukee Opera Theater take the stage for their 7th collaboration and telling of the tale of Rusalka, a story of a water nymph searching for humanity through love by way of magic, featuring singing sprites, dancing goblins, and Jason Powell as the moon. This musical Fairy Tale, resembling the classic Disney move The Little Mermaid, is rooted in Czech folklore, with compositions by Folk music inspired Antonín Dvořák, libretto by Jaroslav Kvapil. Alongside this tale’s classic arias will be a modern day restructuring of the story by song writer, Jason Powell, who is no stranger to sharing the stage with Danceworks and MOT. He reimagines this story through a modern day lense by crafting playful commentary on the current state of our water climate while comparing our blind fantasies of indulgent living to Rusalka’s fantasies with love.

About the Show:
In celebration of live contemporary American music, Danceworks Performance MKE shares space with emerging Milwaukee chamber ensembles and an exciting collaboration between DPMKE member Nekea Leon and the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra’s Steel Band Ensemble. Featured musical guests include the Microcosm Ensemble, the Black Cat Ensemble, and the Cosmo Reed Quintet. A highlight of the concert is composer Jenni Brandons Wildflower Quintet for Reeds. The company dancers will share the concert crafting world premieres and exposing our unique voices. Chamber music known for highlighting a single voice celebrates subtlety and intimacy while creating space for clarity, direction, and powerful ornamentation. This show celebrates the individual and the power of allowing one person to speak at a time.
