Dance Speaks – February 18, 2017 (please note: tentative date) - A choreography conversation for the people and by the people. Dance Speaks is an initiative to use dance as a platform to speak about tough topics in our society. This year, we will partner with Ignite NC to facilitate a discussion about the recent surge in racial tension in America. Choreographers will attend this meeting and receive a recording of the conversation. They will select music and movement that emulates the part of the conversation that resonated with them most. The movements and words expressed will be transcribed onto our professional dancers into a ballet that will address the issues discussed through movement, music, and dialogue. We seek to be objective by sharing and representing all sides of the issue.  For tickets please visit our box office!
