Kate Wallich and The YC x Perfume Genius: The Sun Still Burns Here
Co-presented with the Walker Art Center
Thursday–Saturday, December 5–7, 8pm
McGuire Theater, Minneapolis
“Mike Hadreas, the artist better known as Perfume Genius, has always been a physically expressive performer, and he’s made dance a crucial part of his generally stunning live shows and videos. And now he’s about to make it a focus.” –Stereogum
"[Wallich's work is] particularly hypnotic ... has the power of a cryptic ritual." –The Seattle Times
The beautifully constructed dance worlds of Seattle-based choreographer Kate Wallich meld with the gloriously ornate theatrical music of Perfume Genius to create the evening-length The Sun Still Burns Here. This radical integration of dance and live music features virtuosic performers burning through a postmodern swirl of classical and contemporary movement. The performance delves into what the artists describe as “a spiritual unraveling of romantic decay,” which will “undeniably lure you and immerse you somewhere far from the workaday world” (Seattle Times).
Tickets: $35, $28 Liquid Music/SPCO subscribers and Walker members
