Mom, What's a Five Chick Posse? 

Five Chick Posse Productions, Enloe Dance Company Benefit Concert, Enloe High School, Raleigh, Oct. 27
Remember, you heard it here first: The Five Chick Posse goes live Oct. 27.

This deceptively named gang of seven includes some of the region's edgiest and most promising young choreographers. In addition to their considerable talents, Beth Wright, Julee Snyder, Tiffany Rhynard, Courtney Greer, Susan Quinn, Dena Guvetis and Lindsey Green have at least one additional thing in common: They all got tired of waiting for someone else to intelligently produce their works, and give them critical feedback and support.

They've decided to take matters into their own hands instead, banding together to produce, promote and increase the visibility of dance in the community. Their agenda for the year includes free performances at Artsplosure, First Friday and other likely points of public contact, and a Dec. 15 benefit in Raleigh.

But first they tip their hand at the Enloe Dance Company Benefit, Oct. 27. Last year's inaugural edition was a local dance insider's dream: an informal, one-night convention of the cool, where the region's most forward-thinking dance artists got together to just say (and show) what's on their minds.

This year should be no exception. Not with Snyder's latest experiments involving dancers doing duets with their eyes closed. Not with Chrystal Brown decanting a new collaboration with wheelchair dancer/choreographer Julia Leggett. And particularly not with Amy Chavasse debuting The Fruit Axiom, a work that host Courtney Greer calls "the hardest dance I've ever done."

One money, eight acts--and a convincing summary of where local dance is headed next. Don't miss it.
