Ethnic Dance Theatre Performance

Ethnic Dance Theatre Presents "Uncommon Threads: Folk Costumes of Europe"
Thursday, March 27, 2014 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
$15 ($12 MNHS members). Tickets available online or by phone at 651-259-3015.

What does a teen wearing jeans have in common with a uniformed UPS delivery driver or a fashion model walking the runway or with a business woman in a well-cut suit? Their clothing serves as a cultural reference and an identity that is clearly defined. But what does the folk clothing worn by Europeans in the 1800s tell us about them?
Join the artists of the Ethnic Dance Theatre (EDT) as they explore the evolution, craftsmanship and dance traditions of folk costuming in Europe. The historical thread is woven using multi-media as well as examples from the EDT’s extensive costume collection.
