Screenings at 7 pm and 9 pm of animated films I made over the last decade, including "Minneapolis Beneath the Asphalt, Part 7," my latest combination of public and private animation. It is part of the Northern Exposure screening series at the Trylon. Here's their description: Akre is a prolific creator, teacher, and animation advocate. (He founded the MinnAnimate festival.) This retrospective spanning a decade highlights his collage-like work—both fiction and nonfiction—all of which is visually imaginative and deeply honest. Enjoy a live Q&A with Akre after the show.

The Music Animated concert series returns to In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre for its second installment, which features the Minnesota-based group Dreamland Faces. Bart Buch directs as puppeteers Seth Eberle, Masanari Kawahara, Angela Olson, and Laurie Witzkowski join the band onstage, creating a spectacle similar to a live music video or a musician accompanying a silent film.
The wordless chronicle delves into the history of South Minneapolis as visual echoes of the past are synchronized with the music. Dreamland Faces (Karen Majewicz, Andy McCormick, Philip Potyondy, and Christa Schneider) drives the narrative with mesmerizing compositions that conjure forgotten scenes by way of accordion, cello, piano, cornet, and musical saw.
