Tough Cookie Dance
Triskelion Arts Presents
It’s been said that the secret to happiness is turning your passion into a career. But is bliss within reach if your passion is for modern dance? You might as well tell your parents you’re going to become a poet or a mermaid. They’ll kvetch, “How will you live? How will you make money?” Josselyn Levinson-Dustin and Michael Richman explore the answers to these pesky questions in their evening of new work that probes…well…work, the jobs dancers take on in order to support their irrational addiction to art. Using polls from the dance community, recorded job interviews, and samplings of different “elevator pitches”, this performance addresses just how far some artists are willing to go when they’re not dancing. Bring your resume, your availability, and a can-do positive attitude—you’re a shoo-in for the highly esteemed position of audience member.
