Karen Stokes Dance celebrates 20 years of original performances in "X20."
"X20" looks backwards at the work of Karen Stokes over the last 20 years, while moving forward with the premiere of "Mapping & Glaciers." At this 20 year juncture, Stokes views the company at a crossroads: "We are at the center of an X, with our legs firmly planted in the earth, and our arms reaching to the future!" The celebratory performance includes former company members joining current members on stage in a joyful celebration of past, present, and future.

Friday, November 10th & 11th: "X20" Dance Performance Nights
Karen Stokes has been choreographing original dance works since 1988 and, since 1998, she’s been busy creating, with eight evening-length works and more than 35 short program works on her resume while also expanding and incorporating video projection and site projects. Karen Stokes Dance will celebrate their 20th anniversary – that’s 20 years of original dance works – on November 10 and 11 with X20, a look back that includes former company members and the premiere of a new work, “Mapping & Glaciers.” But before that, join Stokes for a discussion about her own work as a choreographer and the role of arts in today’s society Monday night at The MATCH.
