Film Event and Conversation

Saturday, July 15th at 2 pm

From June 3rd-5th 2022, ShaLeigh Dance Works premiered enVISION: Sensory Beyond Sight to live audiences opening the 89th American Dance Festival’s Season with five sold-out performances at The Fruit in Durham, North Carolina. Talented videographer Palani Mohan captured the show with high-quality multi camera shots of the live performance. While creating this collaborative dance-theater work, filmmaker Michael Washington of Argyle Rebel Films added another layer of collaboration: he documented the process. 

We invite you to join Arts Access North Carolina and the North Carolina Museum of Art, both onstage and behind the scenes through this double premiere to take a closer look at what went into its making and to experience the virtual premiere of enVISION: Sensory Beyond Sight.

ASL, captions, and audio description are provided at this event. If you have another accessibility request for this event, email us at SOFE
