On Thursday, March 30, Keene State College’s Redfern Arts Center will host the Doppelganger Dance Collective (DDC) in the Main Theatre.

Started in 2015, DDC features the duo of Shura Baryshnikov and Danielle Davidson, according to their website. Baryshnikov and Davidson founded the project.

Baryshnikov has performed with numerous dance companies in the past, such as Lorraine Chapman the Company and Lostwax Multimedia Dance.

She currently works at Brown University, but has worked at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Salve Regina University, among others, in the past.

Davidson, a graduate of L’Ecole Superieure de Ballet du Quebec in Montreal, currently works at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee.

Besides performing for many companies and festivals, Davidson has had her own works presented in places such as The fringe Festival of Independent Dance Artists (fFIDA) in Toronto, Brown University, and The Gibney Dance Center in New York City.

The Redfern’s website states that “Doppelgänger Dance Collective (DDC) is a duet project between two dancers of similarly versatile technique, powerful physicality and eagerness to create compelling and dynamic work….DDC fosters the creation and performance of original contemporary dance, often performed with live music.”

DDC will perform “an evening length program of mixed repertory,” at the Redfern, per DDC’s website.

The dance begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 for KSC students with an ID and range from $12-$20 for others.
