In the often transient and frequently banal world of regional dance, Corningworks is a stunning and notable exception. The powerful creative vision of Beth Corning pushes limits while still remaining, at its core, accessible to a full spectrum of audiences. While those steeped in Modern dance will find much to admire, and imitate. The true test of art is its ability to speak to all sorts of people. Ihave sat in the audience at various performances, most recently of her landmark work, What Remains, and have been deeply impressed how transfixed teenagers, twenty somethings, middle aged professionals and non-professionals, elderly people, were. Listening to animated conversations as the audience left, one could hear the excitement of people who witnessed soemthing just a little bit life changing. This nonprofit deserves to get noticed more and more.

...crack the magic code and help it be self sustaining, either through an endowment or a substantial gift.

Having watched the evolution of Beth Corning's career as a loyal fan, it has been a privilege to actually serve on the board and see it from an entirely different perspective. I have always know her to be a brilliant choreographer, a powerful performer, but i had no idea of how meticulously she attends to every single detail of the performance: from choreography and music, to costumes, lighting, set direction, the venue, the publicity, the graphic design, to feeding and housing her dancers. There is no aspect of creating a work that she is not completely in control of, a remarkable and impressive feat. Because in the end, the fact she has never lost sight of, is that it IS about the work, about the art. To attend a CORNINGWORKS performance is to witness dance of rare intelligence and narrative force, a performance that does what the best art does: it changes you. It haunts you. It shifts your way of looking at the world, just a little bit. That is what has always been special about Corning's work. And what continues to be special about CORNINGWORKS.

It is a fantastic opportunity to work with a creative and energetic choreographer (and dancer) who brings thought-provoking and beautiful work to Pittsburgh.
