PORTABLES, An Afternoon of Dance Theater with Claire

Sat. Oct. 18, 4pm, Spurrier Dance Studio Tickets available at the Common Market and if available, at the door, $10 General, $5 Students

Claire Porter, recipient of a 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship, is on the move with her PORTABLES, a collection of funny and poignant character sketches that leave a lasting, laugh-out-loud impression on audiences across the U.S. and around the globe. "Porter, mistress of the short, sharp character portrait, is that rare breed - nimble witty comedian. A soloist with a neat collection of personas, Porter sketches them with the perfect physical gesture ... Porter is always delightful, often wickedly funny." Sally Sommer, The Village Voice
