SDW proudly presents Beyond Sight: The Making of enVISION by Argyle Rebel Films & enVISION: Sensory Beyond Sight filmed by Palani Mohan

About this event

From June 3rd-5th, 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 shoots of the live performance. While creating this collaborative dance-theatre work, filmmaker Michael Washington of Argyle Rebel Films added another layer of collaboration: he documented the process.

We invite you to join us 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.

Chatham Life & Style called it “a new evolution in dance.” IndyWeek praised it as “astounding” and a “bold, immersive performance.” CVNC described it as “a sensational and poetically eye-opening performance,” and Beltline to Broadway chronicled it as “a new sensorial way to experience dance and theater.”

We're thrilled to premiere the documentary and performance virtually. The documentary screening will be followed by an artist chat-back which will also be accessible virtually.
