AMERICAN DANCE FESTIVAL: Made in NC

July 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$32

The Made in NC program features the world premiere of four ADF-commissioned works by North Carolina artists. Dom-Sebastian Alexis, a Greensboro native, is a Hip-Hop and Contemporary Juxtaposition Artist trained in various degrees of Street Dance, Social Grooves, and contemporary dance techniques and has devoted their life to understanding dance diversity. Iyun Ashani Harrison, the founder and artistic director of the Durham-based Ballet Ashani – A Contemporary Ballet, and professor of dance at Duke University, collaborates with and presents the work of artists of color and women to expand racial and cultural diversity in ballet to attract new audiences. Gavin Stewart and Vanessa Owen are the co-founders of Stewart/Owen Dance, based in Western North Carolina, where they are dedicated to building a thriving dance community. As passionate cross-genre collaborators, they cultivate the craft of storytelling through movement while incorporating work by local writers, filmmakers, and musicians. Stacy Wolfson and Curtis Eller, based in Durham, have devised a unique compositional approach combining movement, music, and lyrics to create a peculiar and compelling hybrid of dance and song.
