Murielle Elizéon

ADF Debut!
French-born and now NC-based dancer, performer, and choreographer Murielle Elizéon presents "Brown," a collision with the lingering allure of gender and racial stereotype. In this solo, Elizéon uses personal history to explore heritage, violence against women, loss, vulnerability, and resilience. "Brown" premiered in December 2017 during the UN's 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence. Parallel to the creation of her solo, Elizéon partnered with a professional in restorative justice to create a unique post-artist talk and is developing community engagement events and movement workshops around the thematics of the piece. Following "Brown," audiences are invited to join Elizéon in a uniquely formatted post-show artist talk facilitated by Val Hanson, director of the Restorative Justice Program at The Dispute Settlement Center in Carrboro, NC. Performance contains nudity and adult content.
