MOVING LANDSCAPES IV Dance Concert at CRS Barn Studio
Enjoy beautiful dance in a beautiful setting, at the CRS Barn Studio's
Moving Landscapes IV on SUNDAY, AUGUST 21 at 7:30 pm, at the CRS Barn
Studio, 2622 North Triphammer Road in Ithaca.
Moving Landscapes IV: An Evening of Dance and Music continues the CRS
Barn Studio tradition of bringing innovative dance and music
partnerships to Ithaca audiences. This year's event will showcase live
music with a variety of new and repertory work by dance artists from
around the Finger Lakes. Choreographers and dancers include Donna
Davenport and Cadence Whittier from Geneva, Tina Christina-Price from
the Triple Cities, and Jeanne Goddard, Lesley Tillotson, Lisa Bertuzzi,
Shayna Grajo, Lauren Schler and the Pranadhanas from the Ithaca area.
Highlights of this year's concert include a range of jazz standards and
musical improvisations performed by pianist John White, bassist Peter
Chwazik, and baritone Steven Stull, as well as a special guest
appearance by Ithaca's yoga-dance ensemble, The Pranadhanas, and an
original music video created by composer Allen Fogelsanger.
Moving Landscapes IV includes both outdoor and indoor explorations of
space, time, and energy as images, events, and ideas are captured and
communicated through movement. Choreographed pieces will alternate with
music and dance improvisations that involve the entire group, beginning
with an outdoor prologue performed in the gardens adjacent to the CRS
Audience members will enjoy beautiful and intriguing performances with
a panoramic view of Cayuga Lake as a back-drop. This is a rare
opportunity to see choreographic work in all stages of development and
to observe the creative process in action, in an informal setting.
A reception following the performance will give audience members a
chance to interact with the artists and even offer feedback on dance
works in progress. The performance will take place rain or shine.
Admission is free, with donations accepted at the door.
For two decades the CRS Barn Studio has offered high quality,
audience-friendly music and dance productions both outdoors and indoors
at the CRS Growers organic vegetable farm on Triphammer Road. In
addition to opera and musical theatre productions, artistic directors
Jeanne Goddard and Steven Stull have regularly brought together dancers
and musicians from Ithaca, Cortland, Binghamton, Geneva, Syracuse, and
beyond, to present concerts of new music and dance in their intimate
studio theatre. Audiences return again and again for the relaxed
atmosphere, the quality of the performances, and the sensational sunset
views of Cayuga Lake.
Steven Stull and Jeanne Goddard founded the CRS Barn Studio performance
space in 1990. Both artists have over 25 years' experience performing,

from Oberlin College Conservatory and the Eastman School of Music, and
has collaborated with directors and choreographers on a wide range of
projects. Goddard came of age in the avant-garde dance world of the
1970's, trained and performed with Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane and many
other choreographers, and has run the dance program at Wells College
