About the Company

Raina Lucas//Dance Co. & Lab

Founded in late 2016, the Raina Lucas//Dance Co. & Lab is an emerging project-based contemporary dance company based in Durham, North Carolina. Made up of a small, rotating community of talented dancers from across the state of North Carolina, the company seeks to produce works that strike a balance between structure and improvisation, and explores questions about self, society, and the human condition.
Through a laboratory-like rehearsal and performance setting, participants are involved in all aspects of dance-making and performance, and are regularly provided with opportunities to exercise their own agency and challenge their physical intelligence within the frame and structure of a given concept. The company is currently focused on the creation of new works.
