Dylanesque dance show

Why not walk past the colorful Bob Dylan mural on Hennepin Avenue before hitting the nearby Cowles Center for Minnesota Dance Theatre's "Moonshine," featuring choreography set to early folk songs from Dylan's "Bootleg Series." The piece was originally created in the 1990s by British choreographer Christopher Bruce for a group of older Dutch dancers. It tells the story of a band of traveling performers using a gentle and expressive style. Also on the program is MDT's "Point of Departure," a 2008 piece inspired by Haydn's "Farewell" symphony. (8 p.m. Fri. & Sat., 2 p.m. Sun., the Cowles Center, 528 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls., $24-$36, 612-206-3600, thecowlescenter.org.)
