Beginning Thursday and continuing April 22 and 23, CORE will present "Awake My Soul," with choreography by Kelli Leighton, at the Benvenuti Performing Arts Center. The program will feature a restaging of "Silent Noise," the piece commissioned by the Crocker, and "After the Storm," a dynamic new piece celebrating the human spirit. The dances exemplify the intimate emotion and explosive athleticism that is found in contemporary dance.
