Dancing around politics

This show is like speed dating for dance lovers — it’s an opportunity to sample works by several talented Minnesota artists. “Seven” brings together a diverse set of choreographers and dance artists for an ad hoc show, created on a shoestring budget with an expedited rehearsal schedule. Organizer Laurie Van Wieren has asked each artist to create works that emphasize experimentation and audaciousness, responding in part to our country’s current political situation. Performers are Holo Lue Choy, Pramila Vasudevan, Anat Shinar, Deborah Jinza Thayer, Megan Mayer, Charles Campbell and Van Wieren herself. (7:30 p.m. Fri. & Sat., Southern Theater, 1420 Washington Av. S., Mpls., $24. 612-326-1811, southerntheater.org.)
