SHAPESHIFT, a dance collective performing in the 2021-22 Fesler-Lampert series.



SHAPESHIFT, a Minneapolis dance collective, whose founder performed with Prince’s band, 3rdEyeGirl, and which has danced in front of 20,000 strong at Xcel Energy Center, was created on the fly. SHAPESHIFT dance collective was formed to create a fresh new innovative dance style which combines the lyricism of contemporary dance and hip-hop with other dance styles to illuminate the human experience and fuel social change. SHAPESHIFT’s powerful productions boldly tackle current issues of social justice, loss, love and human emotions. SHAPESHIFT’s patented hybrid storytelling productions include full and small ensembles and solo pieces, combined with hip-hop/contemporary movement and other dances styles, fused with popular and old school music, dialog, acting and props.

A Midsummer Night's dream

Presented by The National Players

Monday, April 25

Adults $20, Students $12

Fairies, thespians, and runaway lovers all find themselves wandering the forest at night. With the fairy king and queen scheming, the lovers escaping, and the ragtag troupe of actors hastily rehearsing a show for the duke’s wedding tomorrow, what more could go wrong? When a fairy named Puck accidentally misapplies a love potion and purposefully transforms an actor into a donkey, it will take more than magic to set things right. Get lost in the forest with the National Players in the most epic romantic entanglement of all time. A magical comedy that’s fun for children and adults alike.
