Dance | HERE AND NOW: NC DANCES

REYNOLDS INDUSTRIES THEATER, DURHAM

THURSDAY, JUNE 25

The American Dance Festival and the NC Dance Festival join forces to give local dance artists a place among the international greats at ADF. The program, selected by eminent choreographers Carl Flink, Beth Gill and Rosie Herrera, amounts to a lively, challenging and politically engaged evening addressing social dynamics, public policy, sexism and historical memory. Anna Barker presents excerpts from it's not me it's you, the hilarious dance-theater duet, with Leah Wilks, which opened Durham Independent Dance Artists' first season in 2014. ShaLeigh Comerford, another DIDA alum, offers Dedicated to [ ] because of [ ] (and vice versa), a collaboration with dramatist Richard Kirkwood, which explores gender and violence. Kristen Jeppsen Groves' MFA thesis project, [ME]thod, probes the art of negotiation through the archetypes of political representatives, workers and citizens. And Karola Luttringhaus offers a duet from InertiaRemembering the Holocaust, which is informed by interviews with survivors. Though diverse in style, the works are united in their concern with power—how it works, whom it favors and how to bottle it on stage. 7 and 9 p.m., $16.25, 125 Science Drive, Durham, 919-684-6402, www.americandancefestival.org. —Brian Howe

Price: $10-$16.25
