Minneapolis is the perfect blend of natural beauty and urban sophistication. No other American city has a chain of lakes, the mighty Mississippi, and 200 miles of walking, biking and cross country ski trails within the city limits-literally steps from the most vibrant arts and music scene outside NYC, the best shopping in the region, and museums among the finest in the nation. Celebrate your stay in Minneapolis with some of these fabulous, unique events.

Chewing Marbles Screening: Bedlam Lowertown

April 3rd to 4th
It is an original musical by Benjamin Kelly. There are 4 actors and no dialogue. Completely silent acting using nothing but body language. The entire piece is scored for a modern pop style band with vocals. It is the vocalist’s lyrics that are the literal and abstract narration to the story. The band entertains from their classic venue, the stage, while the characters world is among the audiences. Close by proximity, but distances away like an interrogation mirror. Enjoy this love story between 2 people who are encumbered by their human expressions and bleeding hearts.
