Lecture Demonstration: Margie Gillis - Dancing from the Inside Out

Location: Rubenstein Arts Center 224, 209 Campus Drive, Durham, NC.

Free and open to the public.

One of the iconic solo artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, Canadian dancer and choreographer Margie Gillis will perform four selections and take questions from the audience. Come and experience the deep artistry of this unique creator. "Each dance is a condensed distillation of a concept or state of being or experience. Each dance is created in its own unique manner, following the psychology of the subject to its architectural crystallization. These dances are created to support the soul's visibility. They reflect my soul's desire to touch." - Margie Gillis.

Margie Gillis, Canadian choreographer, performer and teacher, is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. At sixty-five years of age, she has maintained an active career that is followed with interest by audiences of all ages. She is one of a rare handful of mature artists who continues a full and ongoing process of discovery, transition and transformation, by constantly reinvestigating and reinterpreting the power of dance through her immersion in her career as creator, performer and teacher.
