NAT CURSIO CO.
presented by Arts House as part of Dance Massive
March 21-25, 2017
Tiny Slopes is about learning to skateboard. About learning. About risk, failure, vulnerability and little wins. It is a choreography of actions and problems; of body, object, and sound, studying and attempting to make visible the humility one adopts in order to learn something new. Tiny Slopes is as much about what we don’t know as what we do and sees the performers learning, failing and changing in real time.
