Cornfield Dance and a NEST Grant!

A NYC dancer/choreographer friend of mine, Ellen Cornfield, will be in residency at the Dragon’s Egg (401 Shewville Road, Ledyard) for a few days in August., as a part of a NEST grant which Cornfield Dance, Windhover in Massachusetts, and the Dragon’s Egg, have won!

They will be performing on Tuesday, August 23rd at 4 pm, preceded by a half hour open rehearsal.

My idea – and they agree – is to have painters – from the Monday morning plein air group, from the Thursday morning life drawing group – and other local painters and painters’ groups –
Come to see the August 23rd rehearsal/performance, not simply in your audience role, but in your painterly one – with your painting supplies, easels if you wish,
and to paint them as they move! So, a kinetic exercise for the hand, eye, mind, imagination!

I also plan to invite poets to come, with the same sort of idea – that they write poems or prose as inspired by the movement before them.

I then propose to have, perhaps a week or two later, a show of the paintings or drawings, at the Egg, with a poetry reading – so a one day, once only event.

Might this be of interest to you?
Oh, I hope so.

Thank you so much, Co-Artistic Director for the Mystic Paper Beasts,
Namaste, And Executive Director for the Dragon’s Egg
