State of Dance | Burning Coal Theatre at the Murphey School | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Nov. 6-8, 7:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $10

There's something in the air among the Triangle's young independent dance-makers—a sense that it's time to join forces and incubate new ideas, or capitalize on some momentum. Dance-focused support organizations such as Durham's DIDA and Saxapahaw's Culture Mill are just emerging and defining their roles. With State of Dance, Raleigh's Burning Coal Theatre, bolstered by grants from various state and city arts councils, claims complementary goals of "bringing innovative minds in the local modern dance community under one roof for an extended period of time to create work, to perform, to train, to learn and to teach." A month-long residency filled with free talks, classes and open rehearsals climaxes with these premieres of five new pieces by five emerging local outfits. They include Ashley Walls White's philosophically tinted AWW Performance Company, Raleigh's Black Box Dance Theatre, multimedia collective Code f.a.d., the Carol Finley Dance Group and Durham's Renay Aumiller Dances, fresh off premiering RAD RAD Revolution at Motorco. This is a partial but vital survey of the new wave of local dance; see Burning Coal's website for the full details of what they have incubated. 7:30 p.m., $10, 224 Polk St., 919-834-4001, —Brian Howe
