Soaking WET - Ellen Cornfield/Cornfield Dance
The Company will perform Ms. Cornfield's newest work, "Close-up," which continues her investigation of depicting the emotional and psychological forces that shape people in their behavior.
Collaborators are costume and set designer Andrew Jordan and composer Andreas Brade, who will perform his work live. "Close-up" is supported in part by the Harkness Foundation for Dance and the Sidney Stern Memorial Trust.
Active in the dance field for over 45 years as dancer, teacher and choreographer, ELLEN CORNFIELD began her modern dance studies at UC Berkeley, moved to NYC to perform with the Merce Cunningham Company, and formed her own ensemble, Cornfield Dance, in 1989. Her work has been seen regularly in NYC, throughout the U.S., and in London, Holland, France, and Belgium. Her performers have been described by Gus Solomons jr as "...among the most proficient, technical and kinetically expressive dancers around."
Dancers: Ellen Cornfield, Pierre Guilbault, Ruth Howard, Vanessa Knouse, Logan Pedon, and Joshua Tauson
