    ADF is delighted to present, for the first time, four of Tere O'Connor's interconnected works over the course of three special evenings. "BLEED" is the culminating work of a two-year project during which he constructed three other pieces, "Secret Mary," "poem," and "Sister," all from very different source material and each with an entirely different cast. He then collapsed these into this fourth work, simultaneously remembering and forgetting the previous dances. All eleven of the performers from the other works are here, yet the movement material is gone. Ghosts of the other dances resonate through the new work and shape its form, but they are subterranean and exert their pressure on this new construction from the caves of memory. There will be a special, free, open to the public, hour-long discussion with Tere O¿Connor at the end of the company's residency. Don't miss an evening of this company's ADF visit! Go ahead; make your way to every event!Sunday, July 13, 2:00pm & 8:00pm Program 1 "Sister" (FREE!) in the Ark, Duke East Campus.Tuesday, July 15 at 7:00 & 9:30pm Program 2 "Secret Mary" and "poem" Reynolds Industries TheaterWednesday, July 16 at 7:00 & 9:30pm Program 3 "BLEED" Reynolds Industries TheaterThursday, July, 17 at 8:00pm FREE Community Discussion with the artist in the Ark, Duke East Campus.
