4 professional NC choreographers will presented new or recent dance works at Goodyear Arts in Charlotte.
ShaLeigh Dance Works (Durham) shared an excerpt from “enVISION: Sensory Beyond Sight” as an immersive, interdisciplinary performance that proposes a new experience of dance and theater that engages senses beyond the visual.
“Halidom,” by Joy Davis and Eric Mullis (Charlotte), is a duet created in Tokyo and Kyoto in 2019. Together, they engage in conversation between the artists’ movement vernaculars and Japanese Butoh.
In Lee Edwards’ (Durham) “reclamation: processing (through) lament,” the dancers explore the “now” and the waves of the past which we are constantly reckoning with, asking how rest, play, and joy exist alongside the chaos of our present moment.
Carol Finley and Courtney White (Raleigh) present “Misfortunes,” a collaborative duet on stationary bikes that employs humor to challenge competition culture in group fitness environments and consider the randomness of what comes our way.
An artist talk-back followed the performance.
Admission was by donation ($25 donation suggested).
This performance was sponsored by Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist’s Performing Arts Medicine Clinic, and Stability Engineering, with additional support from the NC Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
