Cornfield Dance Season
The company will premiere Ellen Cornfield's newest work, Close-Up. This dance physicalizes the emotions of the performers, integrating small, detailed movements—a shaking hand or a blinking eye—within the larger visual field of the piece, revealing the dancers’ inner worlds. This mercurial work moves from playful to sublime, with a robust full throttle movement vocabulary that drives the action forward.
