Catch the premiere of a brand new evening-length work by choreographer Demetrius Klein, who was recently awarded a 2017 Rudolph A. Frank Prize for the Performing Arts. Klein is the founder of dkdc/DIY Projects, a collective of dance and movement artists committed to the creative process and to producing dance works of uncompromising artistic integrity in a variety of traditional and non-traditional settings.
According to Klein, “Laurel is a work about home and community. It’s also about how people move forward, organize, and resist in the face of oppression. Finally, it’s about how people move away from family and home in order to find a better way of life but continue to hold on tight to the culture and values of their home.” Dancers range in age from 10 to 60 years old. dkdc/DIY Projects encourages audiences to experience dance in a relaxed setting with an open mind.
Parents interested in exposing their children to the arts should attend the special, family-friendly and abbreviated version of “Laurel” on October 7 at 10:30 a.m.
All others should attend the premiere of the full-length “Laurel” on October 14, 8-10 p.m.
Admission to either performances reflects the company’s unique policy, to “pay what moves you.”
