Extraordinary aerial repertory concert to debut in Charlotte by Caroline Calouche & Co.

Caroline Calouche & Co. will perform a unique, contemporary dance concert at the Patricia McBride and Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux Center for Dance in uptown Charlotte on Friday, March 23 at 8pm & Saturday, March 24 at 3pm & 8pm. This innovative type of dance combines bungee, aerial silk hammocks, aerial cube and an invented apparatus to lift the dancers and the patrons to a level of art not often seen.

Spring Forward is a repertory concert featuring the world premiere of “Free to Live” which is partially funded by the ASC’s power2give program. This new aerial and contemporary dance work by the Main Company is an innovative piece where Caroline Calouche and the dancers will explore how different people define the idea of freedom. Says Calouche, “The dancers and I are finding so many layers to the idea of freedom and how freedom has been interpreted throughout world history. The rehearsals for Free to Live are immensely thought-provoking for us and we hope the performance will be that way for the audience.”

On the program as well is the contemporary work “Catch Me” that was created for the NC Dance Festival. The program will feature a new aerial dance work by Caroline, “what brings us close”, which explores the blend of aerial and contemporary dance and will be performed by the Adult and Youth Ensemble dancers. Three dancers have also been chosen to present their choreography on the program: “Shadows” by Jim Reynolds, “Human” by Reba Bowens and “Ashes” by Allison Hagaman.
Tickets are available through the CC&Co. website for all performances for $15-$20 before 3/22/12 or $20-$25 at the door.
