The Demetrius Klein Dance Company premieres LAUREL

8:00:00 PM

Great Big Room at Memorial Presbyterian Church 1300 S. Olive Ave WPB 33401

“Laurel, is a new work by Demetrius Klein in collaboration with the dancers. Admission is PAY WHAT YOU CAN.

As Klein puts it, “In very simple terms, Laurel is a work about home and community. It’s also about how people move forward, organize, and resist in the face of oppression. Finally, it’s about how people move away from family and home in order to find a better way of life but continue to hold on tight to the culture and values of their home.”

This evening-length performance features a versatile cast of performers. “Laurel is unique because we have such a vast range of dancer ages—10 to 60. Seeing the vulnerability and the power of the different generations interacting is really striking,” says Kristen Vencel, dancer and DKDC rehearsal director.

For more information about this and other projects, please email dkdcdiyprojects@gmail.com, or call Tracy Simkowitz at 561-758-8726.

DKDC/DIY Projects is a collective of dance and movement artists committed to the creative process and to producing dance works of uncompromising artistic integrity in a variety of traditional and non-traditional settings.

The Demetrius Klein Dance Company has been a staple of the regional arts scene — and South Florida’s oldest modern dance company — since 1986. Mr. Klein is a celebrated choreographer whose awards include the Hector Ubertalli Award for Artistic Excellence, a Choreographic Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and several grants from the MacArthur Foundation.”
