Kinetic Canvas: Jackson Pollock

  • August 2 (Friday), 8 PM and August 3 (Saturday), 6 PM
  • Harford Community College, Chesapeake Theater

The Kinetic Canvas series returns with an original dance theater production inspired by Jackson Pollock. This innovative performance takes the audience on a journey through a world influenced by one of the most radical abstract styles in the history of modern art and the ideas of detaching line from color, redefining the categories of drawing and painting, and finding new means to describe pictorial space. 
Join us an hour before each performance for an informative discussion presented by Jeff Ball, Associate Professor of Visual, Performing and Applied Arts at HCC.

One of Stephen Sondheim’s most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated dark comedy featuring everyone’s favorite Brothers’ Grimm characters. With a Tony Award-winning book and score, this modern classic is tied together by a plot involving a childless baker, his wife, and their quest to begin a family. On their journey, they meet up with a witch who places a curse on them and interact with several iconic storybook characters. Into the Woods is an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make – but alas, although everyone’s wish is granted, the consequences of their actions return to haunt them. or 443-412-2211
