Places Please! Starring Nicole Wolcott & Larry Keigwin @ Rubenstein Arts Center, von der Heyden Studio Theater
Jun 22 @ 10:00 pm – Jun 24 @ 7:00 pm

Co-presented by ADF and the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University.
Nicole Wolcott, a Brooklyn based artist called ,“One of today’s finest dance comedians and a knockout dancer,” by The New York Times, and ADF alumni Larry Keigwin, a native New Yorker and choreographer who has danced his way from the Metropolitan Opera to downtown clubs to Broadway and back, present their latest work “Places Please!,” a zany trip backstage in the final moments before the curtain goes up. The audience becomes privy to the anxiety and playfulness of life behind the scenes in this anticipation-fueled program that celebrates and extends the creative relationship that served as KEIGWIN + COMPANY’s foundation during its burgeoning years. Set as a dreamscape sonic collage, the evening attempts to capture the parallel and intersecting paths of a dynamic creative process and relationship.
