ShaLeigh Dance Works presents E Pluribus Unum II @ The Durham Arts Council's PSI Theatre
Jun 15 – Jun 16 all-day

ShaLeigh Dance Works presents E Pluribus Unum II
A World Premiere collaboration with Elizabeth Corbett and Alejandro Santoyo

ShaLeigh Dance Works unveils the world premiere of E Pluribus Unum II, the company’s first collaborative project with acclaimed soloist, international guest artist and former Forsythe dancer Elizabeth Corbett. The work builds from Comerford’s nine year relationship with Corbett as her teacher, choreographer and mentor. Both decided to create their own separate works in different locations from a singular script that Corbett developed based on the Laban cube. The title of the work implies the oneness out of many as a response to both the polarization we have felt as a nation as well as how the courageous process of creation unites us.

International composer and pianist Alejandro Santoyo joins SDW to perform an original score for the work. Santoyo will perform live while utilizing the composition developed from the movement’s organizational principles that allow for moments of improvisation. Working collaboratively, Corbett, Comerford and Santoyo challenge the traditional distinction between choreographer, composer and dancer, using their methodology to question hierarchy, authorship and disciplinary boundaries.

E Pluribus Unum II is choreographed by Artistic Director ShaLeigh Comerford in collaboration with Elizabeth Corbett and ShaLeigh Dance Works’ Company members. Original score is created and performed by Alejandro Santoyo.

Loud Color Luminous Sound: Parasol B @ The Carrack
Jun 15 @ 11:00 am – Jun 24 @ 5:00 pm

Memo from the desk of Curator, Kerry Crocker:

Please join me in June for “Loud Color Luminous Sound”, an exhibit of interactive, colorful, noise-making skulpturs and assemblages which were rescued from imminent demise in the parallel timeline which we designate as Timethread “B”. Until recently these artwerks had been misplaced in storage since the time they were transported to my timethread, in late 1971. The artist signed these werks using the name “Parasol”. For the exhibit of these artefakts we will attribute the pieces to Parasol “B”. The artist states through the werk, clearly, that art should be touched, interacted with, played with, to be fully experienced.

Come visit to experience these werks and learn more about their history.

Presented by the TimeScience Alliance, Office of Artefakts
