ARMITAGE GONE! DANCE
Artists in Residence: Oct. 21 - 26, 2013
Tony-nominated choreographer Karole Armitage (Armitage Gone! Dance) and composer/singer/lyricist Corey Dargel conduct a week long residency in Wilmington as part of the world premiere tour of Fables on Global Warming. Created in collaboration with an ecologist from UC Berkeley, Fables blends science with art to create a fresh, innovative new work that is rich in metaphors about climate change and the inter-connectedness of man and nature. The one-hour piece features 10 animal fables from around the globe, which are brought to life through dance, music, vibrant costumes and ancient Asian puppetry -- inspiring and entertaining audiences of all ages.
Fables on Global Warming receives it's North Carolina premiere at 8 pm, Saturday, Oct. 26 in UNCW's Kenan Auditorium. The performance will be followed by a wine reception and meet-and-greet with the artists. read more | buy tickets
