Nocturne is the first major work to be conceived/choreographed by long-time Ragamala soloist Ashwini Ramaswamy. Inspired by the natural, emotional, and spiritual migrations that occur after nightfall, Nocturne summons the different facets of the night — the natural world of flora and fauna, the emotional world of anticipation and longing, and the heightened spiritual potency of pre-dawn. 

"as "Nocturne" gives us a glimpse into a secretive world, the work also confirms that confident inhabitants rule it. For one hour we are transported into an exquisite dream state, one that exists deep in the heart of night." — Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Nocturne transports audiences into a suspended realm where transcendent Bharatanatyam dance served as the vehicle for heart-filling enchantment" — Big Dance Town's 10 Best Dance Memories of 2016


Under the direction of Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy, Ragamala Dance Company's work explores the dynamic tension between the ancestral and the personal. As choreographers and performers, Ranee and Aparna create dance landscapes that dwell in opposition — secular and spiritual life, inner and outer worlds, human and natural concerns, rhythm and stillness — to find the transcendence that lies in between. As mother and daughter, each brings her generational experience to the work — the rich traditions, deep philosophical roots, and ancestral wisdom of India meeting and merging with their hybridic perspective as Indian-American artists. 

For the past 30 years, Ranee and Aparna have worked together in an intergenerational creative partnership. Together they have created their own specific sub-genre that combines a contemporary Western aesthetic with an Indian ethos.  

Now in its 24th season, Ragamala has been hailed by The New York Times as "soulful, imaginative and rhythmically contagious," "[Ragamala] showed how Indian forms can provide some of the most transcendent experiences that dance has to offer." The company’s work has been commissioned by the Walker Art Center, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland, the Krannert Center for Performing Arts at the University of Illinois, the Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), and Opening Nights Performing Arts at Florida State University, and has been developed in residence at the Magee Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) and during an NPN residency at The Yard. The company has been recognized with grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, National Dance Project, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, McKnight Foundation, Japan Foundation/New York, Minnesota State Arts Board, USArtists International, New Music/USA, MAP Fund, American Composers Forum, and 2008 and 2016 Joyce Awards from the Joyce Foundation.
 
The company has toured extensively, highlighted by The Joyce Theater, the American Dance Festival, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Music Center of Los Angeles, Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, International Festival of Arts & Ideas, University Musical Society at the University of Michigan, Just Festival (Edinburgh, U.K.), Bali Arts Festival (Indonesia), Sri Krishna Gana Sabha (Chennai, India), and National Centre for Performing Arts (Mumbai, India).

Ranee is a 2014 recipient of the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award. Among her many honors are 14 McKnight Artist Fellowships for Choreography and Interdisciplinary Art, a Bush Fellowship for Choreography, a 2011 McKnight Distinguished Artist Award, and a 2012 United States Artists Fellowship. Ranee currently serves on the National Council on the Arts, appointed by President Obama.

Aparna’s choreography and performance have been described as “thrillingly three-dimensional” and “rapturous and profound” (The New York Times) and she was selected as one of Dance Magazine’s "25 to Watch" for 2010. Her awards include a 2016 Joyce Award from the Joyce Foundation, a 2016 Doris Duke Performing Artist Award,three McKnight Artist Fellowships for Dance and Choreography, a Bush Fellowship for Choreography, an Arts and Religion grant funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, choreographic and travel support from the Jerome Foundation and Minnesota State Arts Board, and the Lakshmi Vishwanathan Endowment Prize from Sri Krishna Gana Sabha (Chennai, India). Her solo work, presented with live music, has toured the U.S. and India with support from the National Dance Project and USArtists International, most recently at Narada Gana Sabha in Chennai and the National Centre for Performing Arts in Mumbai. Aparna is an empaneled artist with the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (of the Government of India). She serves on the Board of Trustees of Dance/USA.

RAGAMALA’S WORK IS MADE POSSIBLE IN PART WITH FUNDS PROVIDED BY:

The Dr. Dash Foundation, whose mission is to preserve and promote the rich heritage and culture of India, The McKnight Foundation, The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, A 2016 Joyce Award from the Joyce Foundation, Target, The General Mills Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, The New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, New Music/USA, made possible by annual program support and/or endowment gifts from Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, Baisley Powell Elebash Fund, Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, The Carolyn Foundation, The Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation, The Association of Performing Arts Presenters Cultural Exchange Fund, with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, RBC Wealth Management, The Fredrikson & Byron Foundation, The voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, USArtists International, a program of the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Delta, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Minnesota United FC

Leaves of Grass - Illuminated (select scenes) from Patrick E. Scully on Vimeo.

Critics praised the Minneapolis premiere in July 2014: “Scully creates an onstage world that Whitman would have appreciated... Without this daring poet’s soaring words and his willingness to take risks in a hostile era, we may never know what it means to ‘sing the body electric.’ Scully is the perfect caretaker for Whitman’s legacy.” — StarTribune

Patrick Scully was born to play Walt Whitman... For a decade Scully has been gestating Whitman’s poetry and life and has now crafted a luminous performance art piece... the piece’s genius is Scully’s illumination of Whitman texts and his life ... It is a truly great American work of theatrical art.” — Lavender

Combining theater, dance and solo performance, this show is about history, art, and literature — presenting aspects of Walt Whitman’s life and work that are fascinating for our time, in which discussions of male/male relations have moved into every section of the newspaper. “Kevin Kortan makes an appearance as Whitman’s lover Peter Doyle and in one of the work’s more poignant moments they discuss the poet’s refusal to use the pronoun “he” (instead using “she”) in his writing to describe their passionate relationship.” — StarTribune

It’s about dance. In Scully’s words: Whitman’s language is so body-based, so physical, it begs you to press your body up against his words. “Scully, 60, said [this] show is about paying it forward, sharing what he’s learned from dancing with such legends as Remy Charlip. Scully performed in Charlip’s “10 Men” at the Brooklyn Music Academy. “So I get to pass that dream — of what positive relationships between men might be like — forward in this show, by passing on what I got from Remy,” (MN Public Radio) “The movement itself is based in contact improvisation, which emphasizes the intuitive give and take of dancing with another person. Scully’s company members take great care to support and inspire one another.” — StarTribune

Brass Messengers photos by Jim Clifford

"The Brass Messengers are a Minneapolis street band playing mostly original music inspired by global sources. The BMs formed from the annual rubble of of the Heart of the Beast Mayday Parade and Ceremony in Minneapolis. The musical origins were found in the music of Africa, the Carribean and Balkans, but now the BMs play whatever works, throwing in a country song to the crying drinkers, a high speed polka or two for the midwest dancers, running in circles with the little ones, activating gatherings of our activist kin or a bit of Black Sabbath for the metal crowd.   But mostly, it is an original music that rises from the heart of the band that can only be described as a homegrown Minneapolis street music sound.

The Messengers play stages large and small, events from parties to bars, large theaters to street parades and funerals.  The Mess have been a part of the HONK community for nine years running, attending more than ten HONK festivals in Sommerville, Seattle and Austin, TX." — The Brass Messengers website

As her deadline rapidly approaches, newspaper columnist Weezie Alton just can't seem to find the inspiration for her latest offering of "Weezie's Whimsies." So she does what any other self-respecting writer would do. She procrastinates.


Jane Curry is an author, storyteller, performer, and recovering academic with a knack for provoking both thought and laughter with her one-woman shows. Since 1983, she has traveled with her various personae to forty-eight states, Israel and Japan and is available for single-show events, multiple-show tours, and residencies.

Written and performed with a sense of history and humor, the four shows described below address themes of women's history and gender equity. They have been featured for a variety of audiences and venues: performing arts stages, conferences, banquets, fundraisers, teacher in-service workshops, Artists/Lecture/Lyceum/Convocation Series, student assemblies, government agencies, corporations, college and university programming, community groups, festivals, and celebrations.

These performances are also especially appropriate for special events: Women's Equality Day (August), National Girls and Women in Sports Day (February), Women's History Month (March), Math, Science, & Technology Month (April), National Chemistry Week (October), Federal Women's Day, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (February), and National Business Women's Week (October).
 

Jane Curry's One-Woman Shows:

Nice Girls Don't Sweat 
Sammy Kay Knight, English teacher and veteran of the All American Red Heads professional basketball team, tells stories about women's experiences with athletics over time. With a sense of history and humor, Sammy Kay's verbal meanderings engage the enduring themes of physical capacities, propriety, and femininity.

Miz Wizard's Science Secrets
Join Barbara Knight, aka Miz Wizard, as she tells stories about women's contributions to science, engineering, invention, and math... about revolutionary research and media portrayals... about obstacles faced and overcome by women whose passion is discovery.

Samantha 'Rastles' the Woman Question 
Features farm wife and rustic philosopher Samantha Smith Allen as she "rastles" with questions concerning history's treatment of women, rights denied by the church, women's powerlessness before the law, social status, role assumptions, and more.  Samantha challenges the status quo and plants herself squarely on the side of sensible women's rights.

Sisters of the Quill and Skillet 
As her deadline rapidly approaches, newspaper columnist Weezie Alton just can't seem to find the inspiration for her latest offering of "Weezie's Whimsies." So she does what any other self-respecting writer would do. She procrastinates.

Play! out of the Barn: Donald Giovanni in Cornlandia

Play! out of the Barn: Donald Giovanni in Cornlandia
A Picnic Operetta By Mixed Precipitation

 

Republican candidates converge on a small agrarian town in Middle America. Real Estate tycoon Donald Giovanni and his campaign staff have left a trail of broken hearts and broken promises in their attempt to woo voters. Now a strange supernatural force has been ignited to bring him down. It’s a mix of Mozart, ’80s pop, and hair bands! Tasty, garden fresh bites will be served throughout the show to celebrate harvest and campaign fever.

This one-of-a-kind show is directed by Kym Longhi, with a new script by music director Jerrod Wendland. The classic Italian comedic opera meets ’80s hair bands and modern day political drama. Along with music by Mozart and Italian libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, the cast sinks their teeth into the songs of Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Lionel Richie, and Tears for Fears.

Fun for all ages, this mix of theater, food, and music runs approximately one hour and 15 minutes.

Suggested ticket price $10. Call 507.352.4255 to reserve tickets.

Mixed Precipitation is a performance company exploring text, space and form with festive theatrical events that inspire social engagement. The Picnic Operetta is a lively theater experience touring to community gardens and other green spaces. A five-course tasting menu of locally grown, performance-inspired delicacies is served during each show bringing together classical music, horticulture, food, and storytelling into a celebration of ecosystems.

Onion Fest: Workshop on the Farm: The Art of Kolam (Rice Flour Drawing)

Workshop on the Farm: The Art of Kolam (Rice Flour Drawing)
A hands-on visual art activity with Ragamala Dance Company

Each day before sunrise, in southeastern India, millions of women create Kolams—intricate designs made of dry rice flour—on the ground in front of their homes. This daily ritual creates a sacred space and becomes a link between the intimate home and the vastness of the outside world. Throughout the day, birds and insects eat the rice flour, creating a conscious act of giving back to the Earth a bit of what we have taken from it.

The philosophy at the heart of the Kolam tradition—which values the interconnectedness between humanity and the natural world—served as an inspiration for choreographers Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy in creating Sacred Earth.  

In the stunning setting of DreamAcres farm, participants will learn to make their own traditional Kolam designs with rice flour on the ground. Ragamala artists will introduce them to the history of this age-old ritual and how it has been sustained in contemporary, cosmopolitan India, where it provides a daily reminder of the importance of respecting the Earth.

Onion Fest: Play! in the Barn: Sacred Earth

Play! in the Barn: Sacred Earth
By Ragamala Dance Company

 

Sacred Earth is a performance by Ragamala Dance Company. This work explores the interconnectedness between human emotions and the environments that shape them. The dancers create a sacred space to honor the divinity in the natural world and the sustenance we derive from it. Sacred Earth is Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy's singular vision of the beautiful, fragile relationship between nature and man.

» www.ragamaladance.org

Suggested ticket price $10. Call 507.352.4255 to reserve tickets.

Under the direction of Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy, Ragmala Dance Company's work explores the dynamic tension between the ancestral and the contemporary. As choreographers and performers, Ranee and Aparna create dance landscapes that dwell in opposition — secular and spiritual life, inner and outer worlds, human and natural concerns, rhythm and stillness — to find the transcendence that lies in between. As mother and daughter, each brings her generational experience to the work — the rich traditions, deep philosphical roots, and ancestral wisdom of India meeting and merging with their hybridic perspective as Indian-American artists. 

Now in its 23rd year, Ragamala Dance Company’s Co-directors, Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy, have developed over 30 full evenings of work, through which they have created their own specific sub-genre that combines a contemporary Western aesthetic with an Indian ethos. Ragamala creates work that conveys a sense of reverence, of unfolding mystery, of universal celebration, offering new paradigms for cultural hybridity in the 21st century. 

Ragamala’s work is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, National Dance Project, MAP Fund, New Music/USA, USArtists International, Japan Foundation, American Composers Forum, and a Joyce Award. Ragamala is an empaneled group with the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (of the Government of India). 

Called “soulful, imaginative and rhythmically contagious"  (The New York Times), Ragamala’s work has been commissioned by the Walker Art Center (MN), Lincoln Center (NY), Krannert Center (IL), Clarice Smith PAC (MD), Opening Nights at FSU (FL), and the Fine Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), and presented by American Dance Festival (NC), Kennedy Center (DC), Music Center of L.A.(CA), University Musical Society (MI), Just Festival (U.K.), Bali Arts Festival (Indonesia) & National Centre for Performing Arts (Mumbai, India).

Ragamala's performance and workshop are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Play! in the Barn: Is it Feasible

Is it Feasible? is a one-man show based on Bulgarian short stories by Chudomir and performed by Zlatomir Moldovanski. Bulgaria is a nation with a history that spans over thirteen centuries. It has been a khanate, a principality, a kingdom, a communist state and finally — a free-market social democracy. The character and mannerisms of the Bulgarian people are unique, authentic, and unparalleled. Chudomir’s short stories and anecdotes truly contain those quintessential intricacies of Bulgarian culture that “expose, humiliate, outrage and ultimately make us laugh.”

Music on the Farm: Maritza

Maritza performs during Pizza service. 

Maritza’s repertoire includes evocatively beautiful melodies forged in the passionate history of Europe and Russia, lively Jewish wedding dance horas and frailachs, Gypsy (Romany) music, and twisting rhythmic line dance tunes from Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia and Greece. 

Named for a river in Bulgaria, Maritza was born during a jam session among Pine Wilson and friends in 1998 in Decorah, Iowa. Pine’s love for Eastern European music and folk dance was the impetus for the band to take shape. Thanks to the enthusiastic and fun-filled tune ideas of many musicians over the years, Maritza keeps the beat going!
