Cornfield Dance: The Wasp in the Window and Other Dances at Windhover
Cornfield Dance premieres “The Wasp in the Window,” Artistic Director Ellen Cornfield’s latest dance inspired by her residency at Windhover in summer 2021, and “Squaring into Space,” a dance incorporating material from two Cornfield Dance repertory pieces: “Small Stages,” confined to six-foot square areas of the stage, and the pandemic-inspired “Spaced Out,” performed with six folding red chairs. Music is composed and performed live by Andreas Brade. Performances are at 3pm, followed by a Q&A on Windhover’s outdoor stage. Tickets are $34 for adults and $24 for students at https://windhover.org/performances/
