You Should Be Dancing Yeah
it's summer in Durham which means the American Dance Festival is in town. it's a bit like Full Frame Film Festival in that there are a ton of great things happening and i rarely get to any of them, but we try. good article in the Times yesterday about choreographers at ADF this year exploring the meeting points of modern dance and ballet. Unfortunately Mark Morris' company is appearing on the same nights at XX Merge so we won't make it to that.
All kinds of dance will cross paths with Merge music at the Merge With Motion event July 18th at the Carolina Theatre in Durham. Choreographers have created special pieces to accompany Merge music and will perform them to the recorded versions of songs by artists like Destroyer and Caribou, and there will be two works to accompany a live performance by the Rosebuds. Should be a great night! And a good warmup for the events to follow that week...TICKETS HERE
