Dancer, composer, musician and writer Kaitlin June’s initial plan of becoming a therapist was interrupted when she decided to follow her true dream of performing.
The North Carolina native and UNC alumna will perform her first one-woman show, Lightyear, Friday night at the Durham Arts Council.
The show incorporates dance, acrobatics, live piano and poetry and explores the creation and recollection of how memories are stored in the body.

“I was in a program for a master’s degree in expressive arts therapy, which combines dance therapy, music therapy, visual art therapy and creative writing therapy into one degree,” she said.
“In this program we had to do a 10-minute performance about our life in whatever way we chose, so I gravitated to the piano. After the performance, I broke down crying because I realized I really wanted to perform.”
