Late Shift at the Factory: darlingdance

February 24, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

| $10

Inspired by performance art, theatre, and the storytelling nature of art, Late Shift at the Factory celebrates the live experience in all its forms. This new after-hours performance series seeks to pull back the curtain on the process and share insights into some of the most creative performance minds in the area.

For the inaugural event, the Torpedo Factory Art Center welcomes darlingdance for an exclusive look at their new performance BABE (Expansion Pack), followed by a Q&A  with the performance troupe moderated by Director Hayley Cutler.

Tickets are $10 in advance / $15 at the door.

About Babe (Expansion Pack)

BABE (Expansion Pack) is a brand new postmodern dance duet from D.C.’s most exciting and unique performance company, darlingdance. The movement is at once abstract and deeply intimate, curious and clear in purpose. darlingdance is known for taking risks with its audience’s emotions, and BABE (Expansion Pack) is no exception. The movement is funny, endearing, off-putting and unapologetic. Originally inspired by a series of site-specific bus stop performances, the piece draws further inspiration from Torpedo Factory’s beautiful and unusual space. After the performance, there will be a rare opportunity to engage in a Q&A with darlingdance’s Artistic Director Hayley Cutler, who otherwise likes her work to remain a mystery!
