Doug Varone and Dancers

in the shelter of the fold /epilogue comprise an evening of inquiry into both public and personal acts of faith, deeply explored through the signature emotive physicality Doug Varone and Dancers is internationally renowned for. Drawing on his own curiosity about traditional and secularly spontaneous uses of prayer, Varone questions what constitutes faith. To whom are we speaking – and what are we asking for? Is this a mystical or spiritual experience, or simply a dialogue we’re having with ourselves? in the shelter of the fold /epilogue questions our ways of coping, realization, choice; exploring a multitude of expectations inherent in faith and belief.

Award-winning choreographer and director, Doug Varone works in dance, theater, opera, film, and fashion. He is a passionate educator and articulate advocate for dance.  His New York City-based Doug Varone and Dancers has been commissioned and presented to critical acclaim by leading international venues for close to three decades. The Company has toured to more than 125 cities in 45 states across the US and in Europe, Asia, Canada, and South America.

Tickets: $65 / $35 / $28 / $12 (BDFête/Adults/Seniors/Students)
