PORTABLES, An Afternoon of Dance Theater with Claire

PREPOSITIONS AND A PIANO: An Afternoon with Claire Porter Claire Porter, a master of comedic movement monologues (“one of the wittiest in the business”, New York Times) will bring five vignettes to our stage, each celebrating the music of our everyday lives. In Piano Porter portrays an elegant concert pianist whose piano has not yet arrived and as she stalls she slyly addresses the concept of mistakes. In the poetic Homestretch Porter portrays the elongated task of arriving home after an exhausting workday. Joining Porter in Falling for Prepositions is soprano Marla Berg as they address the beauty of prepositions with songs composed by Mary Ellen Childs. Prepositions was created with support from a Live Music for Dance Grant and a Residency at The Baryshnikov Arts Center. “It had the audience in stitches”, Mark Horning, Arts & Exhibits Newsletter, Cleveland OH.
