the transformation of a human spirit while enjoying a night at one of the dopest spots in Durham!

Welcome, to Parcours.

We have a shared human experience, we are born, we grow, we mature and return to the aether. The process of becoming who we are is a lifetime event, I’m squeezing it into one joyful hour.

Come see a spirit, developed from my own experience, inspired by Josephine Baker’s eccentric and playful performance style. Parcours (French for Journey) is brought to you in my reimagined Bohemian Folie Bergere set in the loading dock of the old Durham Fruit and Produce Company lovingly dubbed “The Fruit.” Could there be a better place to invoke the Banana Skirt Goddess in the 21st Century South?!?

Significant moments of our lifetimes are captured in 5 different performance art mediums. She will enter the waterworld, “tap” into existence, learn social norms, dance with the thoughts in her head at a “Rent Party” (that you are invited to) find her purpose in the air (yep I’ll be doing some Lyra) and transform.

My entire existence as a performer has been an uphill battle, and I am not alone. Performers, rEvolutionaries, everyone struggling to find their path and honor their passion, fight everyday to realize a dream. Parcours is my Crusade, my use of my gift from the aether as a gift back to it. I hope you are inspired, but most of all, I hope you come, and find some joy, meet some new folks and have a good time in July!

Opening Night will be followed by a Jam Session with local musicians and artists. For an additional $5 you can hang out with the coolest free thinkers in Durham. All of the proceeds go to CNote Foundation. The CNOTE (Create Nothing Other Than Excellence) Foundation is  a 501(c)(3) launched by three brothers from Durham, North Carolina. All graduates of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University's College of Engineering, with a goal to create sustainable scholarship solutions at HBCU's for underrepresented youth, and strengthen university endowments. www.cnotefoundation.com

Saturday’s Performance will follow a short discussion about the Arts in Durham and surrounding cities. Brainstorming attainable ways to integrate arts and empathy in our communities and ways we can all help engender and sustain creative and authentic experiences in the Triangle. (7/7 7pm)

So much Love, Light,  and Gratitude,

Johanna Rose
