I always am amazed with what I take away from one of CorningWorks performances. Beth's work is so deep with through-provoking images along with a close association of real life moments. I learn more about her feelings and experiences with each performance and come away feeling like she and I had the same experiences. It is funny and serious at the same time; sort of like life! On another note, Beth is so gracious with her appreciation of her fans along with those in the audience as "first-timers".
CorningWorks is an important facet of the Pittsburgh artistic community and represents an area of artistic expression unlike any of the others. Its productions are diverse, surprising, provocative and always of an extremely high quality. CorningWorks productions are on par with anything ones sees in New York! We love it!!
Beth and her 'team' of chosen collaborators always offer a compelling look at the complexities that face a human. Funny, silly, sad and always straight from the heart, the experience that Corningworks dancers bring to the fore is unparalleled in local dance.
We have repeatedly attended performances by Corning Dances and Company, and have invariably found them rewarding. Beth Corning is a highly talented choreographer who significantly enriches the modern dance scene in Pittsburgh.
