Moving Landscapes II: An Evening of Dance and Music

Moving Landscapes II: An Evening of Dance and Music at CRS Barn Studio
features Finger Lakes Dance Talent

Enjoy captivating original choreography and live music in a magical setting. The CRS Barn Studio is pleased to present a new edition of Moving Landscapes II: An Evening of Dance and Music on Saturday, July 25 at 8:00PM. The single performance takes place at the CRS Barn Studio, 2622 North Triphammer Road in Ithaca, NY.

The CRS Barn Studio hosts Ithaca-based artists and regional guests in this informal summer showcase. Choreographers and dancers Donna Davenport and Missy Pfohl Smith of Geneva, NY and Jeanne Goddard, Maren Waldman, Britta Lee, Sarabeth Matilsky, and Kalay Mordock of Ithaca, will perform new dances and works from repertory. Baritone Steven Stull and pianist Richard Montgomery will offer songs of Stephen Foster and others.

Maren Waldman will present her two most recent works, “How to Watch Dance” and “Untitled”
Performed to the driving music of Gotan project, this suite is based upon “loose concepts of Argentine tango, …its history and the emotions that drive it”. Goddard and Stull will premier “Three Studies for John,” a tribute to a long-time mentor and friend. The dance is crafted from photographic images, and set to American popular songs. Donna Davenport and Missy Pfohl Smith will bring fresh new pieces from Geneva for a first showing at the barn.

Moving Landscapes II begins, appropriately, with outdoor site-specific improvisations at 7:45PM on the grounds of the CRS Growers farm. Early birds will be treated to the shifting forms of dance against a panoramic view of Cayuga Lake. The remainder of the concert will take place inside the CRS Barn Studio.

Admission to the event is by donation at the door, and refreshments will be served. The CRS Barn Studio is located at 2622 North Triphammer Road, 1.5 miles north of Pyramid Mall. For more information please email or call 607.257.2043.
