Oct 8 | 7:30-9pm

Mainstage Performance

Van Dyke Performance Space, Greensboro

Tickets $18 - $35

5 professional NC choreographers present new or recent dance work. Amelia Byrd’s (Greensboro) “Womanifesto” explores the struggle, freedom, and acceptance of a woman emerging into her adult life. Nicole Vaughan-Diaz’s (Asheville) duet, “A Portrait of Them” traces the impact of grief – its connections and distances –on a relationship. “Iridescence,” a solo by Jasmine Powell (Hillsborough) was created in the context of the protests for racial justice in 2020, responding to the waves of sorrow, community, guilt, support, promise, and action. Caitlin Dutton-Reaver (Durham) presents “Dances on a Bench (on a Stage),” a site-adaptive solo originally performed in Durham’s Brightleaf Square and on UNC-Greensboro’s Art Truck,  featuring live, improvised performance with local musicians. “Coming Home,: by Tamara Williams (Charlotte), is a section of a larger work, “Morning Honeysuckle, Sunday’s Greed.” Bringing in hip hop, Southern Baptist Church rhythms and southeastern Drumline, the dance explores the physical resistance of oppression in the United States and the celebration of perseverance by African Americans.
