This week, we’re proud to welcome Rhythmically Speaking 2015 to Bedlam Lowertown!
This dance show will explore how rhythmic dance styles co-mingle, preserving, propagating and pushing forward their abilities to connect people through the pulse of shared experiences. We’re excited to see this collection of rhythm-lovers offering seven different takes on these ideas, bound together by their passion for embodying rhythm and music.
Don’t miss a mini-romp on Tuesday at 10pm, or some of our aftertainment this week: Blu-7 performing jazz and blues tunes on Thursday night, a special Saint Paul World Wide Discotheque spinning vintage sounds from the roaring dancehalls of the tropics & luscious rhythms to hypnotize your hip bones on Friday, and a Free Lunch Crew Show bringing the hip hop on Saturday.
