"I know that I'm not alone when I say that Cori Olinghouse is a delightful and substantial dance artist -- hard to categorize or describe, and whose work is unlike any one else's."
- Bill Irwin
Cori Olinghouse returns to Danspace this week to present Ghost lines, her latest work celebrating Vaudeville and its connection to Dada and Surrealism. Olinghouse and phenomenal performers Michelle Dorrance, Elizabeth Keen, Mina Nishimura, and Eva Schmidt experiment with absurdity, non-sequitor timing, visual rhyming, and comedic rhythms. The evening includes a 16mm black & white film created by Olinghouse and film artist Shona Masarin!
Ghost lines opens Thursday! Tickets are going fast. Buy yours online at www.danspaceproject.org or by phone at (866) 811-4111.
