American Dance Festival opens 2009 season with Shen Wei world premiere

Posted by on Thu, Jun 18, 2009 at 4:59 PM

Welcome back to the Indy's ADF blog. This year, we've revamped our arts blogging as part of a site-wide redesign. We're not blogging full-time (yet) about the arts, so we decided to create a "seasonal" arts blog that could be activated on big cultural occasions, such as the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and ADF. 

Byron Woods is returning to be our primary correspondent from the stages at Reynolds Industries Theater on the Duke University campus and, for the first time, the brand-new Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC). 

Last night, Indy arts interns Belem Destefani and Sarah Ewald accompanied me to DPAC to see the technical rehearsal and photo call for RE-, a long-gestating piece by Shen Wei Dance Arts. Of particular interest is the first part, titled "III," which gets its world premiere this weekend in Durham. Here's the first of our preview videos.
