American Dance Festival brings Shen Wei back to Durham…

Ten years ago this summer, internationally acclaimed Shen Wei, (SHEN WAY) one of China’s most original modern dance choreographers, directors, and dancers, formed his company Shen Wei Dance Arts at the 2000 American Dance Festival. Shen Wei is a modern dance choreographer (now in NYC) who also choreographed the opening ceremony of the 2009 Beijing Olympics. He is returning this summer as part of the American Dance Festival at the Durham Performing Arts Center. Performances will be Thursday, Friday, and Saturday—July 22, 23 -24—at 8 p.m and will feature an ADF-commissioned world premiere solo danced by the choreographer himself.

WKNC deejays will be giving away tickets for the July 23 performance. Listen in and be the correct caller when the deejay asks for it to win tickets to experience this celebration of movement and dance.
