American Dance Festival presents
Murielle Elizeon in BROWN
Sunday July 8 at 2:00 and 7:00
Monday, July 9 at 7:00 Tickets via Duke Box Office
French-born and now NC-based dancer, performer, and choreographer Murielle Elizéon presents Brown, a collision with the lingering allure of gender and racial stereotype. In this solo, Elizéon uses personal history to explore heritage, violence against women, loss, vulnerability, and resilience. Brown premiered in December 2017 during the UN’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence. Parallel to the creation of her solo, Elizéon partnered with a professional in restorative justice to create a unique post-artist talk and is developing community engagement events and movement workshops around the thematics of the piece. Following Brown, audiences are invited to join Elizéon in a uniquely formatted post-show artist talk facilitated by Val Hanson, director of the Restorative Justice Program at The Dispute Settlement Center in Carrboro, NC. Performance contains nudity and adult content.
A One-woman Performance
July 5th - 7th. 8PM
Welcome to Parcours:
We have a shared human experience: we are born, we grow, we mature, and we return to the aether. The process of becoming who we are is a lifetime event -- Johanna is squeezing it into one joyful hour.
Come see a spirit, based in Johanna’s life, and inspired by Josephine Baker’s eccentric and playful performance style. Parcours (French for Journey) is brought to you in a reimagined Bohemian Folie Bergere set in the loading dock of the old Durham Fruit and Produce Company. Could there be a better place to invoke the Banana Skirt Goddess in the 21st Century South?!? Significant moments of our lifetimes are captured in 5 different performance art mediums, including Lyra.
Johanna says: "My entire existence as a performer has been an uphill battle, and I am not alone. Performers, rEvolutionaries, everyone struggling to find their paths and honor their passions, fight every day to realize their dreams. Come find some joy, meet some new folks and have a good time in July!"
Special Events Thursday and Saturday: Opening Night will be followed by a Jam Session with local musicians and artists. For an additional $5 you can hang out with the coolest free thinkers in Durham. All of the proceeds go to CNote Foundation. Saturday night’s performance will be preceded by a discussion at 7PM about integrating arts into our communities and sustaining authentic, creative experiences in the Triangle.

As the finale of DIDA's 2018 season, The Bipeds present '54 Strange Words', a psychedelic movement and live music experience that treads along the mysterious threshold between dreams and reality, while blurring the line between dance and song. Choreographer Stacy Wolfson and musical director Curtis Eller draw the show's imagery from a series of nightmares and the failure of language to adequately express these unsettling visions. Movement and live music (featuring The Bipeds' scorching rock n' roll band) emerge as the only effective methods of illuminating the disturbing world in which the performers find themselves.
