Doug Varone - ADF

Doug Varone and Dancers: “Recomposed” at Durham Performing Arts Center - 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM

The American Dance Festival and the Nasher Museum have co-commissioned ReComposed, a new work by Doug Varone and Dancers. In ReComposed, Varone creates a dance inspired by American abstract artist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings with lighting design by Robert Wierzel. Mitchell used gestural, sometimes violent brush-work, and described her own paintings as “an organism that turns in space.” Varone’s work hauntingly echoes Mitchell’s explosions on canvas. “In each of us is a storyteller, creating tales filled with the memories of our lives,” says Varone of his solo, The Fabulist, commissioned by ADF and premiered to great acclaim in 2014. Additional work will round out the program.

 

This event takes place at Durham Performing Arts Center.

 

At the Nasher Museum, Doug Varone and Dancers will conduct an open rehearsal on July 21 and an interactive workshop, Stripping the Dance on July 23. More information
