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 Barn Studio.
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, writing, directing, and producing music and dance events in traditional and non-traditional venues. Stull holds degrees in vocal performance 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 since 1987.
