Friday-Saturday 5/11-12

Amsterdam-based choreographer David Zambrano is among the most dynamic movers at work in the field today. He blends contemporary dance and improvisational influences to create his own smooth, playful, athletic and high-energy style. With his "Soul Project," the Venezuelan-born artist calls together a mini world summit of dancers from Mozambique, Greece, South Korea, Slovenia and Slovakia for an evening of stirring movement set to some of the biggest voices in music -- Aretha Franklin, James Brown and Bettye LaVette, to name a few. Don't expect to remain in your seats for this one -- the audience will view the work up close from a variety of angles within the actual performance space. There's also an early opportunity to check out Zambrano and crew on Thursday at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. as they take over some of the Walker's public spaces.
