Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion —“Dearest Home”

From the CFA:

Abraham.In.Motion returns to Wesleyan for the Connecticut premiere of “Dearest Home” (2017), Kyle Abraham’s newest work. Comprised primarily of solos and duets, “Dearest Home” focuses on love, longing, and loss while showcasing six dancers’ most vulnerable and intimate states of movement. Presented in the round, the audience has the choice to watch the performance with the soundscape playing through headphones, or in silence. The company previously performed the sold-out Connecticut premiere of “Pavement” at Wesleyan in November 2013. There will be a pre-performance discussion on Friday, October 6, 2017 at 7:15pm facilitated by DanceLink Fellow Katie Lowen ’19.
The presentation of “Dearest Home” is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Sloth: Caught Red Handed

From Misha Iakovenko ’18:

The Sloth is back for our first show this semester! The theme: caught red handed.

The Sloth is a storytelling collective that puts on 1-2 story slams each semester. At these story slams, each storyteller gets 5 minutes to tell a story related to a chosen theme. It’s non-competitive and always fun.

We want to hear about a time you did something you weren’t supposed to do, a time you caught someone in a lie, a time you just got really messy with some paint (or blood or ______)!

Date: Thursday, October 6
Time: 8-9:30PM
Place: Alpha Delta Phi, 185 High St
