Getting Off The Ground: Dance-Art-In-Progress
Just wanted to let you all know about two work-in-progress showing this coming week at the Firehouse Center for the Visual Arts. Lida Winfield is a long time friend and fellow dancer that I have had the pleasure of working with. She is a skilled performer and very talented. If you are in the area or can travel to this show I strongly recommend attending as I know it will be great.
Two shows: One on December 16th and one on December 18th both at 7pm. Dance Artists Lida Winfield and Ellen Smith Ahern are collaborating – come celebrate and be a part of their new work! They will perform an hour-long duet composed of both improvised and set material. Generated from images of moving water, hawks, deer, and people in the map of an imaginary landscape, the duet is full of humor, awkward grace, aggression and tenderness.
Following the performance, please join us for a reception and introduction to their 2011 project, Getting off the Ground, which involves making and sharing work, teaching, and fund raising for sustainable artistry.
