Revolutionaries in the Dark | Reality Center | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Fri., Nov. 3, 7-10 p.m. 2017
Price: $15-$50

In early October, the pack of multidisciplinary performers who make up ShaLeigh Comerford Fairbanks's ShaLeigh Dance Works wove through Unscripted Hotel's first-floor lobby as part of Durham Independent Dance Artists' fourth-season launch party. In pairs and larger groups, they whirligigged with and against one another, throwing limbs between intrigued passersby as they shuttled luggage between the bar and the parking garage. (Behind them, DJ PlayPlay streamed Haddaway's "What Is Love?") In other words, they know how to fill a space. On Friday night, the company hosts Revolutionaries in the Dark, a benefit gala for their 2017–18 season (which will kick off with I Promise, one of DIDA's three fall performances). At heart, it's a fundraiser for the group's performance and community engagement work (replete with silent auction and raffles). But, as the grandiose title suggests, it'll also be a theatrical event, with music, visual art, poetry, and, of course, dance. —Michaela Dwyer
