Take a trip down Minnehaha Avenue, a street that, in it's own diagonal way, has woven itself into the fabric of our lives. An original work crafted from memoirs, 8mm family film footage, diary entries and neighborhood lore, Minnehaha Avenue spins a yarn that spans 4 generations of growing up and growing old in Southern Minneapolis.

A new play conceived and directed by nimbus co-artistic director Liz Neerland, Minnehaha Avenue tells stories in the various languages that generations use to speak to one another - from the giggles at a boy-girl dance, to the whispers of buildings long gone, to the roar of a '47 Studebaker hurtling toward the Persian Palms for a nightcap.
