Founded in 2012, the North Carolina project-based and is comprised of professional dancers from the area known for their technical and creative capacities. Their concert dance performances have been presented in 15 national and over 30 regional festivals, including 7 self-produced performances in traditional and alternative venues. RAD’s recent dance film collaborations responding to the intricacies of pandemic life have gained international presence in Sweden, Canada, Pakistan, and the United Kingdom. In 2020, the need to support one another has never been more apparent.

Jessica Michal / Moves
Jessica Michal is a professional dance artist based in the New York/New Jersey area. Originally from Robbinsville, New Jersey, Jess attended Rutgers University's Mason Gross School of the Arts to earn her BFA in Dance Performance in May 2021. Her work studies the connection between the human body and the infinite mind. Rooted in intimacy and vulnerability, Jess focuses on the complexities of the human experience with an aim to not answer, but instead, question more deeply the intricacies of this mind/body relationship. “Exhaust Me” takes viewers on a ride through control versus chaos, expansion versus contraction, and structure versus freedom. Through movement of the body and motion of the camera, this film challenges us to consider the multiplicity and multidimensionality of the female being.
