new solo work in SCUBA

By | Announcements

Nichole Canuso will be showing new work in Philadelphia, as well as touring to Minneapolis, San Francisco, and Seattle.

Nichole will be performing a 15 minute version of the work in Philadelphia in March, and on the SCUBA tour. The full-length version of Midway Avenue will premiere at FringeArts on May 2-4, 2014. If you are in Philadelphia, we would love to see you for both the short version, sharing a bill with cutting-edge companies from around the country, and the evening-length version that will happen in May. And spread the news if you have friends in Minneapolis, Seattle, or the Bay Area!

about Midway Avenue:

The past and present overlap in ways both literal and ephemeral to create a composite portrait of a life in Midway Avenue. Solo performer Nichole Canuso questions, constructs, and transforms the outlines of her memories, and the world that shaped them. Simple images accumulate to reveal an internal map built of personal details and universal yearnings. With both careful attention and playful abaondon, she tackles questions about what we choose to keep and what we toss aside. Using Chopin’s 24 Preludes as a frame to work within and wrestle with, Canuso embraces and erases the lines that define her.

about SCUBA:

“A kind of Whitney Biennial of dance, this mobile showcase taps the country’s best emerging talent … and sends them on the road.” — Minnesota Monthly

In addition to Philadelphia’s Nichole Canuso Dance Company, also on the SCUBA line-up are Seattle’s Elia Mrak, NAKA Dance Theater (San Francisco) and SuperGroup (Minneapolis).
