The American Dance Festival and Nasher Museum co-present This Land Is Your Land by Seattle choreographer and distinguished ADF faculty member Mark Haim for 14 performers in the minimalist tradition. The acclaimed work debuted in Paris in January and is special to North Carolina audiences this summer. Set to a dynamic country music score, This Land is Your Land is based on a simple, continuously mutating walking pattern. Haim uses culturally-identifiable props, from Starbucks cups to cell phones, to explore contemporary hot-button issues such as consumerism, environmental abuse and body image. Contains adult themes and nudity.
Tickets: $15. Purchase tickets at Duke University Box Office online at tickets.duke.edu or by phone: 919-684-4444. There will be limited chair seating available on a first come, first served basis. Additional seating will be available on the floor, and audience members will also have the option of standing. Performances are 50 minutes. More information: americandance festival.org.
