"The Wolf of Walmart" brilliantly showcases the high-risk, high-reward approach to satire that has made BNW famous.

    In contrast to other recent BNW shows, "The Wolf of Walmart" will not limit itself to a particular theme. "This show will be a sampler platter of what's crazy in America," says BNW artistic director Caleb McEwen. "No one can agree on the cause, but everyone can agree that things have gotten weird."

    Dates: October 15 - 17, 2014

    Thirty-one years after it set the dance world on fire, one of the defining choreographers of our time offers a rare remount of her groundbreaking early dance-theater masterpiece. Although Walker Art Center has presented Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker previously, her signature work has never been seen in the Midwest. Now widely-viewed as a seminal work of art for its rhythmic complexity, stylized minimalism, nuanced feminism, and choreographic rigor, the piece has had an impact on several generations of dance creators on both sides of the Atlantic.
