DARLING (premiere)

March 5, 2020 - March 6, 2020
Hanesbrands Theatre, Winston-Salem, NC

DARLING explores vulnerability and intimacy through the presence and absence of touch. More than romance--how does touch inform relationship? The work seeks to redirect assumptions about the correlations between strength, power, gender, and size. Simoneau continues her investigation of partnering dynamics with dancers Kayla Farrish, Marielis Garcia, Donovan Reed, Carlo Antonio Villanueva, and Claire Westby. An original score by Mary Kouyoumdjian supports and inspired the work in addition to dramaturgy by Melanie George, lighting design by Nicole Pearce, and costume design by Quinn Czejkowski.
