DIDA Season Launch 

When: Sat., Oct. 7, 7:30-9 p.m. 2017
Price: Free

It's not unusual to watch Durham Independent Dance Artists performers from the deck or interior of one of downtown Durham's newer hotels. Last fall, we hugged the roof railings of The Durham Hotel at sunset to see Stephanie Leathers's quadrants, a prelude to her roving site-specific work Home: the metamorphosis. Earlier this year, we circled the 21c ballroom for Matthew Young and the Department of Improvised Dance's fluid Set and Setting. Following this trend and DIDA's broader interest in placing dance work in nontheatrical, transitional social spaces, the local indie dance presenter will host its fourth-season launch party at Unscripted Durham, the new resident of the recently redeveloped mid-century-modern Jack Tar Hotel building. (Yes, the place where people on Instagram have been taking all those swimming pool selfies.) DIDA artists past and present (Matthew Young, Ginger Wagg, and ShaLeigh Dance Works) will perform on a loop; DJ PlayPlay will provide the tunes. —Michaela Dwyer
