Director’s Note for Duke Performances’ 2017/18 Season

We live in anxious, uncertain times. Across our globe, in our country, our state, and even our city of Durham, there seem to be newly monumental consequences of our decisions, many of which feel beyond our control.

Each year, Duke Performances partners with a range of campus and community organizations to coordinate over 120 distinct artist residency events.
