NC Dance Festival in Durham
Each year, the NC Dance Festival, produced by Greensboro-based Dance Project, presents work by some of the best modern dance choreographers in the state. Four of this years selected artists will present work in the Durham performance, including the NC Dance Alliance/NC Dance Festivals New Works Award winner Chris Yon. More about the artists and dances on the program:

NCDA/NCDF New Works Award Winner Chris Yon presents a new solo for Taryn Griggs, HOW TO PUNCH, KICK, STAB, KILL. Witty and dark, the work draws inspiration from disaster survival guides, instructional diagrams for aerobic disco routines, and illustrations of disembodied hands in its idiosyncratic performance. Rachel Barker presents the trio Welcome, a humourous and vulnerable stream-of-consciousness-like journey for the performers through movement and spoken word. Alexandra Warrens JOYEMOVEMENT Dance Company presents excerpts from the full-length For Love of Country, an exploration of patriotism, struggle, reconciliation, and moving forward. Classical Indian dance artist Ramya Kapadia tells the story of Krishna, an incessant prankster in her solo, Krishna - The Blue-Hued Cowherd.

Following the Durham performance, the NC Dance Festival then continues across the state, visiting Asheville (October 20-21) and Greensboro (November 9 and 11). This 2017 season is dedicated to the late Andrea Lawson, Music, Dance and Community Engagement Director for the NC Arts Council, in honor of her constant support of dance and art in NC, and the NC Arts Councils 50th Anniversary season.

Parking information: After 4pm - Guests may park in either the Durham Athletic Park lot located on W. Corporation St., between Foster St. and Washington St. OR the Measurement Inc/Farmer's Market Parking lot located on Morris St., between Hunt St. and W. Corporation.
