African American Dance Ensemble
Elizabeth Burke and Luke Hickey
ADF Debuts and World Premiere!
The African American Dance Ensemble returns to ADF with their exuberant brand of dance and music. JOYEMOVEMENT’s solo, Fit The Description, is a love letter to all who have been accused of being a suspect because of the color of their skin, their hairstyle, their spunk, their clothing style, the shape of their nose, the color of their teeth, how they laugh, who they worship, or where they eat lunch. Charlotte Ballet will perform Ohad Naharin’s Minus 16. With a musical score that ranges from Dean Martin to traditional Israeli songs, Minus 16 uses improvisation and Naharin’s acclaimed Gaga method in this exhilarating work. In celebration of ADF’s 40th year in Durham, the festival commissioned Dialogues by Artistic Director Robert Weiss and Resident Choreographer Zalman Raffael of the Carolina Ballet. Tap dancers Elizabeth Burke and Luke Hickey will also perform. The evening’s performance begins with the season dedication to Allen D. Roses, M.D., ADF’s late board chairman, and with a presentation by local children attending Pilobolus’ Shadow Camp.
