The NC Dance Festival brings professional modern dance choreographers from across the state together to share innovative and moving dance works. NCDF is celebrating its 29th season with shows in traditional and non-traditional venues across NC. Energetic, unexpected, powerful, and joyous, the concert presents a wide variety of NC dance.
Three choreographers will inhabit the gallery space in this intimate performance. In Studio C Project’s (Durham) atmospheric “Two,” three dancers follow two sets of movement instructions, discovering connections and testing the accuracy of memory. Vania Claiborne (Burlington) presents “(Bro)tha/Brother”, a duet for two men that celebrates and explores black male joy, friendship, and humanity. Janice Lancaster (Winston-Salem) explores interior and exterior landscapes of memory and identity in the solo “graze,” conjuring the sense of vast grasslands through the symbolism of a pair of elk antlers. Greensboro Dance Film Festival will also screen a short dance film as part of their 6th annual season. A conversation with the artists follows the performance.
