“…strong, sharp-edged dancing
and a daring theatricality.”

— The New York Times

“They’re athletic, sharp, articulate dancers, supple and beautifully controlled, and they connect immediately with audiences.”

— Camille Le Fevre,
The Minneapolis Star Tribun




2014 Cowles Center Season April 17-19


The Cowles Center For Dance And The Performing Arts

April 17-19 8:00 pm

$27-$31 fees included
Box Office: 612-206-3600 or

World Premier
In the digital age of the “selfie” and social media, self-reflection can turn into self-obsession at the push of a button. Shapiro & Smith Dance’s newest work, “Narcissus” takes audiences down a path of mirrors where we see how our preoccupation with image might distort how we see ourselves and how we think others see us.

The evening will also include a reprise of three Shapiro & Smith Dance favorites, “Jack,” “Dance with Two Army Blankets” and “What Dark / Falling into Light.”  

Join us for a discussion with the artists following the April 18th performance as part of The Cowles Center's Meet the Company: Talk-Back Series.

This project is funded with the generous support of The National Endowment for the Arts, Target Foundation, McKnight Foundation and The Metropolitan Regional Arts Council.
