Musician and writer David Jordan Harris highly recommends "Garden of Names," a collaboration between Zorongo Flamenco and Flying Foot Forum that uses dance to look at state-sponsored violence in Argentina in the 1970s. Choreographer Susana di Palma envisions how an artist should respond to tumultuous times. "Garden of Names" runs through April 15 at Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts in Minneapolis.
Publisher Eric Utne says he's not a poetry kind of guy, but he never misses "Literary Witnesses" at Plymouth Congregational Church. In honor of its 20th anniversary, the poetry series is bringing its founder, poet Sam King, along with poet Gregory Orr to read their work and discuss the life-saving qualities of poetry. The celebration includes three events on April 8 and 9.
