American Dance Festival: Claire Porter & Sara Juli

( Tue., Jun. 20, 2017 - Wed., Jun. 21, 2017 )

Reynolds Industries Theater, 125 Science Drive, Durham, NC 27708


The duo, first paired by ADF in 2015, Claire Porter & Sara Juli present their latest ADF-commissioned collaboration, The Lectern. Living according to rules is the demand on all of us. We are surrounded by the rules of our laws, protocols, manners, and expectations. But what are these rules? What are the rules of the game we’re playing? And what happens when rules take over? Using movement, text, sound, song, and a catwalk runway, the acclaimed comedic performers upend our day-to-day, necessary to-survive, rule-rituals in The Lectern and find the hilarious in the rule-bending of our daily lives.
