Dislocate is centered on themes of loss, perception and paradigm shifts. Inspired by the experiences of international refugee families relocated to Charlotte North Carolina, Dislocate, is a physical inquiry into stories of courage, expectation, disappointment and sacrifice. In this thought provoking work, dancers will navigate physical and emotional spaces; searching out moments of synchronicity, balance and connection in a shifting, off kilter environment.

As an entry point to the creative process, SCDP will work with local non-profit refugee service organizations, to collect a series of recorded interviews from displaced families. These stories will be source material for the creation of this work. These interviews will also be incorporated into the original sound score for the dance piece composed by Mike Wall.


Dislocate has received the NCDA/NCDF's 2016 New Works Award.
