DIDA Book Club Discussion Series

Facilitated by Kelly McChesney, City of Raleigh Public Art Director

To engage with Durham dance-goers in a new format, we've created DIDA Book Club. Every Weds. following a DIDA performance, you're invited to discuss the work over wine in a laid-back environment. To facilitate, we have selected a group of people who we know to be highly personable and adept at critically processing dance.
Why not have post-performance discussions after each show?
DIDA thinks that interesting dialogue might happen when people have had a few days to process their experiences as audience members. DIDA Book Club takes this conversation outside of the performance environment, and in doing so, creates space for a more robust discussion about each individual work. Similar to a book club where the author is not involved in the discussions, the producing artist(s) will not be present at DIDA Book Club events.
DIDA Book Club events will be held at Bar Brunello each Wednesday following a DIDA show on Season 4. Drink specials will be offered to participants at each event.
We hope you'll help us spread the word about DIDA Book Club! We look forward to connecting with you!
