Company’s Chamber Dance at the Carrack

Local dancers in Durham have positioned themselves for a great leap forward by forming an ensemble, Durham Independent Dance Artists, earlier this year. The first DIDA season opened in November, and continued with performances by DIDA co-founder Justin Tornow’s Company at the Carrack Modern Art Gallery on December 13-14, when she premiered her work No. 13, The Weights.

The DIDA season continues this week with Tommy Noonan’s Brother Brother, also at the Carrack in downtown Durham, and will carry on in the new year with several more dance programs. Check out this refreshing development in Triangle dance.
