DakhaBrakha, which means “give-take” in old Ukrainian, was presented by NC State LIVE in 2014. With the war in Ukraine, DakhaBrakha’s music and message are even more timely. Their music is intimate then riotous, a uniquely contemporary sound with Ukrainian roots, inspiring “cultural and artistic liberation.”

(A)Way Out of My Body

Thursday, November 10
7:30pm in Stewart Theatre
Post-Show Talk following the performance
)

(A)Way Out of My Body uses “out of body” experience as a metaphor for our times and our body politic. Dancers propel themselves through space and time, attempting to pass the barrier of reality and plight into the realm of resilience and joy. This collective story of searching for personal “truths” among fantastical sensations is seen through breath-taking lighting and visual design by the brilliant theater maker Andrew Schneider. The company’s four-person house band, led by superb songwriter Elizabeth DeLise, is seen and heard throughout as though beckoning us into the otherworldly-ness of our dreams, desires, our every day, and the new worlds awaiting us.
