ADF and the NC Dance Festival (NCDF) are delighted to co-present four dance works by North Carolina choreographers. Selected by nationally recognized choreographers Carl Flink, Beth Gill, and Rosie Herrera, the works of the four chosen artists celebrate dance being created here and now, at home in North Carolina.
Anna Barker will present excerpts from it’s not me it’s you (2014), an evening-length duet made up of a series of dance-theater vignettes exploring the idiosyncrasies of relationships. Dedicated to [ ] because of [ ] (and vice versa) (2007) by Shaleigh Comerford is a complex dance theater work that explores the deeply personal and cultural landscape of gender and violence. Kristen Jeppsen Groves’ [ME]thod (2011) defines the complicated relationships of policy players and highlights the power dynamics involved in policy language, history, and current challenges within policy. The duet …dann von Deiner Hand from Karola Luttringhaus’ larger work Inertia – Remembering the Holocaust (2008) is about love and its defense in the face of social and political oppression.
