A fusion of classical theater, shadow puppetry, Nordic folk music, and contemporary ballet, VANAHEIMR reimagines Early Norse sagas from the perspective of the Vanir – deities that existed in Scandinavia long before the Bronze Age altered the continent of Europe forever.

The production will be performing the first two weekends of December at the Heart of the Beast's Avalon Theater in South Minneapolis. Tickets on sale October 2nd.
