The Glue Factory Project: Are We There Yet?

The Glue Factory Project:

Are We There Yet?

Choreography by Beth Corning
Presented by CORNINGWORKS and the New Hazlett Theater

May 5, 2011–May 8, 2011

Performed by John Giffin (former dancer with Pina Bausch), Claire Porter, (critically acclaimed solo performer) Jane Shockley (former principal dancer with Zenon Dance Co.), Peter Sparling (former principal dancer with The Martha Graham Co.) and Beth Corning.

5 consummate performers from the field of dance explore the question... Are We There Yet?

When asked "when does one become an adult?"
an 8-year old quickly responded: "When you have to pay taxes!"

an 80-year old said,
"when you figure out that life is not a dress rehearsal"...

"In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes"...
Becoming an adult? That's not always so certain!

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20,2007. pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
