Event is free and open to the public.

In collaboration with choreographer Jenny Larsson, Girls’ Club presents an evening of experimental dance and performance. Doors open at 6pm. Performance begins promptly at 8pm.

On the Other Side of the Lake is an exploration of mixed media/live performance. The main character is the lake - a body of water that connects memories, emotions and experiences. Jenny Larsson will use water as a common denominator in the work, as inspiration for dance movements and for storytelling.
