About ARENA DANCES
ARENA DANCES is one of the Twin Cities’ premiere dance companies. Regarded as “physically brilliant yet emotionally intimate, dramatic, widely varied, witty and heartfelt,” (-Lightsey Darst) Janczewski’s work has pushed the boundries of the Twin Cities dance Community for over two decades. ARENA’s works, while abstract, bring audiences into the worlds and emotions presented on stage. Janczewski consistently seeks to create dances that speak to the human condition in all its glorious, wrenching, and magical ways and to transport audiences through the beauty and breathtaking physicality of his movement.
In 2013/14 ARENA DANCES will introduce The Main Street Project, A full- length performance that moves between physical and digital space to explore how technology alters our personal connections and changes the face of small town America. Within the piece, electro/techno/pop music combines with folk-inspired songs to illuminate themes of isolation and belonging, and filmed interviews with everyday people from multiple communities bridge the gap between today and yesterday. The Main Street Project combines explosive movement with intimate narrative to ask the question, “Does Main Street still exist?”
