We got an email about what sounds like a very cool dance performance this Friday at the Carrack downtown. This is a installation of a work in development called Secrets I Never Told My Mother. The piece is a collaboration of durham-based choreographer Leah Wilks and videographer Jon Haas. Here is the gist:
Based on interviews collected by choreographer Leah Wilks, Secrets I Never Told My Mother uses video design, audio documentary, and the movement of five dancers to explore the practice of secretkeeping, and the societal expectations and human reasoning that accompany it.
 “Constructing ‘Secrets’ at The Carrack” is part of a ten-day residency (July 30 – August 8) at The Carrack Modern Art awarded to LeahWilksDance to explore and develop this new piece. Multimedia will be on display throughout the residency. Participants will experience a fully interactive installation where secret-keeping and the implications of secrets will be explored through writing, music, audio documentation, video projections and movement.
Sounds very interesting. The performance is Friday night 8/3 at 8:00pm and is FREE. The multimedia installation will be on display now through next week 8/8.

DURM Hip Hop Summit

The 5 original elements of Hip-hop culture will crash land at the Casbah in Durham, NC. The burgeoning hip-hop team of Toon & The Real Laww have been tapped to curate a one day, hip-hop festival of sorts, that will "bring back a positive light" to the durham rap music scene. This day will include live breakdancers, graffiti artists, beat-box with live DJing exibitions, and so much more! The night will be capped off with live performances from 5 of Durham's most promising hip-hop acts!

This event will focus on the "5 pillars" on which hip-hop culture stands upon. Those elements, or "pillars" are, the Emcee, the Break Dancer, the DJ, Beatboxing, and last but not least, the graffiti artists. The elements will be presented throughout the night with live exhibitions mixed with various audience participation opportunities.

Performances by:
Hosted by Bishop Omega, the night will be sponsored so far by Pabst Blue Ribbon and RunawayClothes.com, a local clothing company run by Gabe Eng-Goetz.
