Threads and Shadows is an evening of dance created by Alexandra Joye Warren and Sarah Council that includes A History of Dirt and Slaying Ghosts; two distinct works connected by overlapping themes. This concert represents the collaboration of two artists of different cultural backgrounds, working in different cities, exploring similar themes but in very different ways.
Creating emotionally driven choreography that is multi-layered and expressive, Sarah Council Dance Projects, a contemporary modern dance company based in Charlotte NC, will present A History of Dirt.
A History of Dirt is a dance for four women that considers how the past affects the present by presenting physical embodiments of human experience and connection. It investigates the body as a keeper of histories – a record of things we’ve done and of things done to us. The work suggests that we exist in a web of histories – those of our family, our city, our nation, and that we are deeply impacted by this web, sometimes without our conscious knowledge, but our bodies know, carry, and remember. A History of Dirt creates space to listen and discover what the body is holding.
Slaying Ghosts, choreographed by Alexandra Joye Warren and performed by her company JOYEMOVEMENT, explores breaking cycles and disrupting the stigma of getting help during emotional or psychological crisis.
Composer Nicholas Rich (formerly based in Greensboro) created an original composition for this work including original poems by Alexandra Joye Warren.
JOYEMOVEMENT dance company is based in Greensboro. The company centers their contemporary dance around topics that explore social justice and artistic activism.
Threads and Shadows will feature original music created by Ronald Keith Parks, Mike Wall and Nicholas Rich and will include performances by Jenn Jones, Brianna Little, Emmanuel Malette, Milanda McGinnis, Claire Nagy-Kato, Hannah Nichols, Dylan Reddish, Amanda Rentschler and Samantha Salvato
