Wild Space Dance Company ends its season this weekend with multiple performances of Map of Memories, an ambitious conceptual program themed around Milwaukee’s multicultural Jones Island. The program’s dances and images are derived from tales of the Eastern European immigrants who inhabited the island in the late-1800s. For added historical perspective, Milwaukee historian-extraordinaire John Gurda will speak about the island’s history before tonight’s 8 p.m. performance at Danceworks.
