In They Are All North Carolina choreographers Murielle Elizéon and Tommy Noonan interweave the combined expertise of professional dancers, neuroscientists, people with Parkinson’s disease, and data informaticists. The multi-generational work explores the relationship between cognitive engagement, interpersonal relationships, and movement. At once an artistic and research project, They Are All probes the ways in which artistic technologies and perspectives can be useful to medical research, as well as the ways in which medical, technological, and experiential expertise in movement disorders can generate new artistic perspectives in dance. This performance contains brief female nudity.
Post-performance discussion is Wednesday, June 26.
They Are All is commissioned by ADF with support from the Doris Duke/SHS Foundations Award for New Works and The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation.
This program is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional funding is provided by RTI International.
