It's official: the American Dance Festival is moving its largest performances from Duke's outdated, outmoded Page Auditorium to the Durham Performing Arts Center.
While many productions will still be housed at Duke's Reynolds Industries Theater and (according to the H-S) at Baldwin Auditorium on East Campus, the move to DPAC brings the signature dance festival to a downtown facility funded with the help of the university, and intended from its early days to support the Duke-housed annual summer festival.
Also new this year: Golden Belt gets into the act, hosting a single performance. The ADF's release notes that one additional "Triangle" venue will also play home to one dance performance.
This year's inaugural performance, to be housed in the DPAC, will feature Shen Wei's arts company, which contributed memorable works to last summer's Olympic Games in Beijing.
Tickets to ADF go on sale on May 11 through Duke's ticket office and the DPAC.
