In late March, TU Dance and Bon Iver shared Come Through, a work in progress. The piece featured choreography by dance company co-founder Uri Sands, and music by Grammy winner Justin Vernon. Kate Nordstrum, who produced the collaboration for the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music Series, called the sold-out performances a hopeful reflection relevant in today’s cultural climate. The 90-minute work officially premieres this weekend at the Palace Theatre in St. Paul during, again, four sold-out engagements, with nine dancers performing with live music from the band. “Both Uri and Justin make work that reaches deeply inside of you, to the core of your humanness,” says TU Dance co-founder Toni Pierce-Sands. “So there’s a profound connection between the music and movement that touches our genuine kindness and gets to a place of love and humility.” Both artists are renowned for their singular beauty, gorgeous musicality, and the heartfelt generosity of their work. This collaboration promises to soothe our hurt and hardened hearts and reignite our spirits.
