A connectome is a detailed map of a brain's neural network, containing one million times more connections than a genome has letters. Can this complicated system be altered through movement? In Connectome, String Lights uses modern dance to explore what gets caught in the crossings, including memory, dreams and personality. 

A moving celebration of brain plasticity, Connectome will be presented at The Southern Theater as part of the 2012 Minnesota Fringe Festival. View the show trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBHZzfvWPKo

Featured artists include guest choreographer Jennifer Mack, singer/songwriter Matt Marka, and dancers Michelle DiMeo, Renee Guittar, Erika Hansen, Kimmy Hinman, Jennifer Mack, Ashleigh Penrod and Una Setia. String Lights is directed by Ashleigh Penrod and the show will be managed by Erin Jerabek. 

As much as we wish ticket sales could cover the costs of producing a show, they simply do not. That's where you come in! Your support of Connectome will help cover rehearsal space rental and performance fees for the artists.

Thank you in advance for supporting this project. We hope to pay you back in the form of a beeeauuuutiful show. Come and see us at The Southern Theater on the following dates:

Friday, August 3 at 7 p.m.
Saturday, August 4 at 7 p.m.
Tuesday, August 7 at 5:30 p.m.
Friday, August 10 at 4 p.m.
Saturday, August 11 at 7 p.m.
