An outdoor, immersive performance experience using theater, dance, movement, and original music to explore the continuing histories of immigration to St. Paul’s Swede Hollow neighborhood.

Location: Swede Hollow Park

Time: 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Drewery St. Pedestrian Tunnel at the intersection of Drewery Ln and Beaumont St. , St Paul, Minnesota

Audiences will set off on an outdoor, guided, theatrical promenade through Swede Hollow Park in St. Paul, stopping along the way to experience moving vignettes within a recreated world that evoke the early history of Swedish immigration to the area in the 1850s. Using Swedish playwright August Strindberg’s play The Ghost Sonata as a starting point of inspiration, this stellar cast of local, multidisciplinary performers will bring to life the community that once lived in the park, sharing tales that resonate with the ongoing, current day stories and experiences within St. Paul’s East Side. Working closely with local businesses and organizations, this project also includes additional community events designed to spark conversations about the rich history of this incredible neighborhood.
