Dead Man’s Walk is an excerpt from I Promise, the company’s newest evening-length work which received a standing ovation on opening night! Excerpts have been described as “Rousing group work!” by Indy Week and have launched the Company’s first NYC tour since landing in NC.
Dead Man’s Walk was recently performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center and Dixon Place in NYC and will proudly tour with the 2018 North Carolina Dance Festival this Fall. The physicality of the work is driven by the desire to rebel and fueled by Comerford’s vision to transform unspoken emotions into physical sensations. Although individuals momentarily emerge through solos, and relationships emerge through duets, the quartet dominates, revealing a tribal force pointing at humanity.
Dead Man’s Walk is choreographed by Artistic Director ShaLeigh Comerford in collaboration with the Company. Original compositions are by Mike Wall at soundFORMovement.
Estimated Runtime: 20 minutes
