“Aren’t they just marvelous?” Beth Corning asked, referring to our dancers during a recent rehearsal for “At Once There Was a House,” her groundbreaking work which will enjoy a reprisal during our Fall Dance Series (the piece first debuted at GroundWorks DanceTheater in 2004).
“It’s not about learning a script. It’s about creating each individual dancers own story,” Beth says about choreography for “At Once There Was a House.” “This is not acting. It’s more like you have to allow it to become you. I like the essence of things. I don’t like when people try to become something they are not. You can’t push it. You just have to trust the movement to carry you through.”
We are delighted to have Beth back and we are excited to share photos from rehearsals this week.
