Cross Currents
 is a 50-minute site-specific, contemporary dance performance that looks at a powerfully storied place— the James River shoreline in Richmond — to reflect and generate a present-day physical power that is at once grounded in the chosen site and connected to past and future.

Charlotte Boye-Christensen, Artistic Director and choreographer for NOW-ID, trained in London and NYC. She has created new work for national and international companies and conservatories: Danish Dance Theatre, The Bauhaus in Germany, European Dance Development Center in the Netherlands, Ballet West, Milwaukee Ballet, Singapore Dance Theatre, and others. Charlotte co-founded NOW-ID in 2013 and is also head of dance at Texas Tech University.

Charlotte Boye-Christensen and NOW-ID will be in residence November 3-17, 2019.
