ShaLeigh Dance Works presents I Promise @ The Fruit
Dec 15 @ 8:00 pm – Dec 17 @ 8:00 pm

As part of the 2017-2018 Durham Independent Dance Artists (DIDA) season,
ShaLeigh Dance Works presents I Promise
December 15-17, 2017
at The Fruit

ShaLeigh Dance Works unveils the world premiere of I Promise, the company’s newest evening-length work with excerpts already described as “Rousing group work!” by Indy Week and slotted for performances next year in NYC launching the Company’s first tour!

The title of the work is a response to Martin Luther King’s iconic 1963 speech, “I Have a Dream.” I Promise is the sentiment of remembering to carry the dream forward.  The evening length piece is presented in four sections, interweaving solos, duets and large ensemble work. The physicality of  I Promise is driven by the desire to rebel and fueled by Comerford’s vision to transform unspoken emotions into physical sensations. Although individuals momentarily emerge through solos, and relationships emerge through duets, the ensemble work dominates, revealing a tribal force pointing at humanity.
