Open Eye Figure Theatre Presents


September 28 - 30, 2018

A FUSEBOX project by Sally Rousse

What happens when 100 pounds of complex, quixotic humor and grace take over the spaces of Open Eye? Dangling from the ceiling, crawling beneath the seats, whipping around the outdoors and cupboards, dance maker Sally Rousse explores the pleasures and risks of nontraditional performance spaces.

About Sally Rousse
Best known to Minnesota audiences for her work with James Sewell Ballet, which she co-founded in 1990, dance maker Sally Rousse made her 1992 Minneapolis debut in what was then known as The Little Theater (now TEK Box) on the second floor of the Hennepin Center for the Arts. Rousse worked tirelessly with Artspace, the Minnesota Legislature and Minneapolis City Council, and the dance community to raise funds and awareness for the Shubert’s historic move and renovation. In 2014 The Cowles Center and James Sewell Ballet (JSB) honored Rousse with a tribute and retrospective. 

FUSEBOX projects are exciting, unpredictable, new works in development, created by Twin Cities artists exploring new intersections between performance, song, puppetry, dance, and visual art.

Audiences are an important part of the process! Sharing these new works-in-progress give artists an opportunity to interact with audiences and refine their productions based on audience feedback.
