NCDF at Goodyear Arts

Goodyear arts, charlotte

Suggested donation $25

4 professional NC choreographers will present new or recent dance works at Goodyear Arts in Charlotte.

ShaLeighDanceWorks (Durham) shares 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 interactive artist mixer will be co-hosted by NCDF and Dance Arts Alliance Charlotte (DAACLT) from 5p-6p, prior to the performance on Saturday, October 7 at Goodyear Arts.

Admission is by donation ($25 donation suggested). Please RSVP to claim a seat.

An artist talk-back will immediately follow the performance on both nights.

Audio description of the performance will be available both nights.

*Heads up: One of the dances has a sound score that includes explicit language, and the performance shares space with an art gallery; art on display contains some adult content.

This performance is 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.
