Claire Porter & Sara Juli @ Reynolds Industries Theatre
Jun 21 @ 8:00 pm

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.

Barboursville Wine Dinner @ The Fearrington House
Jun 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join Beverage and Service Director Paula de Pano in hosting Barboursville Vineyards’ winemaker, Luca Paschina, and Broadbent Selections’ Maximilian Kast, for a wine dinner at The Fearrington House Restaurant.
With over 25 years of expertise at Barboursville Vineyards, Luca and the winery are now considered pioneers of quality winemaking in Virginia, if not the entire United States. Originally from Piedmont in Italy, Luca’s perspective on the role of wine in life “is drawn from a trust in the land and humility in the exercise of their skills to elicit its finest fruits.” 
From their flagship wine, Octagon, which rivals First Growth Bordeaux, to aromatic expressions of Sauvignon Blanc and Viogniers, to savory Nebbiolos and Cabernet Francs, to even sweet wines made from Malvaxia, Barboursville Vineyards finds itself to be at the pinnacle of American Viticulture.
Tickets are $175 per person and include wine pairings, a nine course dinner prepared by Executive Chef Colin Bedford, service fee and tax. Please call 919.542.2121 to reserve.

Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Co and Natalie Marrone & The Dance Cure @ Reynolds Industries Theatre
Jun 23 @ 8:00 pm

Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Co. revive Young’s 30 year-old Interleaving, a piece combining four separate dances, For Wall Unfolding (an all female quintet), Double Bill (a trio) and two quartets, Music Minus One and Sambosamba. This unusual choreographic concept uses these four dances that have traditional beginnings, middles and ends, but instead of a linear presentation of those sections, Young has grouped them together: all four beginnings are performed sequentially, then all four middles and, finally, all four ends. The evening will begin with a performance by North Carolina’s Natalie Marrone and the Dance Cure, chosen from eighteen entries by a jury of local arts presenters consisting of Aaron Greenwald, Executive Director of Duke Performances, Sharon Moore, Director of NC State LIVE, and Amy Russell, Director of Programming for Carolina Performing Arts.
