The Karen L. Charles Threads Dance Project’s 13th Season will present with Tapestries 5.0 – a program dedicated to providing choreographic opportunities for emerging artists to see their work come to fruition in a produced show. Tapestries 5.0 features local choreographers Gabrielle Abram, Jenn Pray and Elayna Waxse.

The featured guest choreographers will expose many aspects of humanity and will explore issues and connections in our inner and outer worlds. The company will also perform an excerpt from Warriors of Light (2015), inspired by “Warrior of the Light: A Manual” written by renowned Brazilian lyricist and author Paulo Coelho. Charles collaborated with composer and musician Sanford Moore to create this work, encouraging the audience to overcome fear, look at the world without bitterness and foster positive change in the world.

“…I was left gasping for breath and on the verge of tears…” -Ira Booker, MINNESOTA PLAYLIST
