In this intimate performance space, ShaLeigh Dance Works (Durham) presents “Dead Man’s Walk,” an excerpt from their recent evening-length “I Promise,” a response to MLK Jr.’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech. This ensemble work transforms unspoken emotions into rebellious physicality in a reflection on our humanity. The Bipeds’ (Durham) duet for banjo and movement is a peculiar and compelling hybrid of dance and song. Megan Mazarick’s (Durham) solo dance story “monster,” unpacks female identity in new ways, remixing the metaphor of “hero vs. villain” to showcase the body in transformation.
A short audience/artist conversation follows the performance.
