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.

Don’t Dress for Dinner @ Raleigh Little Theatre
Jun 15 @ 8:00 pm – Jun 24 @ 3:00 pm

“Don’t Dress for Dinner” (Comedy), by Marc Camoletti.

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, while his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a Cordon Bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights and has invited his best friend, Robert, along to provide the alibi. It’s foolproof. What could possibly go wrong? Well… Suppose Robert turns up, not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers and consequently determined that Jacqueline will not leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook must pretend to be the mistress, and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi is confused with everyone else’s. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.
