About Late Nite
ABOUT THE LATE NITE SERIES
At the Non English Speaking Spoken Here: The Late Nite Series, curators e.g. bailey and Laurie Carlos bring some of the best interdisciplinary performers from New York and Minnesota together to explore the cross-currents of contemporary culture through music and sound, text and images, and movement and dance.
When you attend a Late Nite performance, you’re part of a family and every good family has a good meal. That’s why we always serve up great food before you digest some amazing art. Be sure to bring your appetite when you join us for Late Nite. Food from local chefs served at no extra charge starting at 8 pm in the lobby where audiences can mingle with artists before the show.
Past Late Nite’s have included: Daniel Alexander Jones, Nioka Workman, Jessica Huang, Matana Roberts, Curio Dance, Quinton Moore, Sol Light, Katherine Glover, Dylan Fresco, Sun Mee Chomet, Juma B. Essie, Ellen Hinchcliffe, Lisa Brimmer, Jose James, Zell Miller III, Kenna Sarge, Idris Goodwin, Queen Drea, Stacey Robinson, and many many more.
