"Small Stages" Workshop Series - Free!
Cornfield Dance is thrilled to announce the "Small Stages" Workshop Series! The workshop will be taught by two incredible company dancers: Cori Kresge and Joshua Tuason! The sessions are FREE, though donations are accepted, and are completely open to the dance community. Created for performance on a 6’ X 6’ platform, this material is ideal for being executed in your bedroom or living room. The workshop will be offered on the following dates:
Monday, August 10th
Tuesday, August 11th
Wednesday, August 12th
At the following times:
Solo #1 (taught by Cori Kresge): 2-3pm Eastern Time
Solo #2 (taught by Joshua Tuason) 3-4pm Eastern Time
All are welcome to learn one or both solos, attending as many or as few of the sessions as you like. Solo #1 is 3.5 minutes, Solo #2 is 3 minutes, and both will be learned across the three days.
This playful works sports a robust movement vocabulary, from everyday movements and facial expressions to rigorous dance sequences. The piece pulls the viewer’s attention into the details of the dancers’ emotions and interactions, similar to the way a camera zooms into a close-up, revealing the interior world of the individual characters. With humor, exuberance, conflict, passion and tenderness, this half-hour dance creates a large canvas on a small stage.
"Why rent rehearsal space, why bother with a theater, when you can do so much with a platform the size of your bathroom?”
