JASMINE POWELL: SHADOWS CHASING LIGHT

Choreographer Jasmine Powell was moved by Shadows Chasing Light, Texas-based poet Brian Bowers's 2012 book. She resolved to set the work in motion on the stage. In the resulting collaboration, an array of dancers and musicians from five continents creates "a transmedia experience," combining spoken word, original music, photography, visual art, and ensemble movement in an evening-length work that asks, in Powell's words, "how we learn about ourselves and how we love. Not what we love, or why we love, but how." Bowers's smoky, meditative voice over ambient soundscapes leads us along the way in this latest show from Durham Independent Dance Artists. —Byron Woods
