'Moving Landscapes' continues the Triphammer Arts/CRS Barn Studio tradition of bringing innovative dance and music partnerships to Ithaca audiences. Beginning with an outdoor prologue performed in the gardens, with a panoramic view of Cayuga Lake, the evening will include choreographed pieces in a wide range of dance styles, as well as music-and-dance improvisations that engage audience members in a lively creative process. This is a rare opportunity to see choreographic work in all stages of development, and to observe dance making in action in an informal setting with live music. A reception following the performance will offer audience members a chance to meet the artists and even offer feedback on dance works in progress.

Kitchen Theatre Company launches its 2017-2018 Season with Smart People, a sharp and provocative new comedy by Lydia R. Diamond. Summer L. Williams, Associate Artistic Director of Company One Theatre (Boston, MA), directs. Performances of Smart People begin at the Kitchen Theatre Company in The Percy Browning Theatre on September 3.

"I couldn't be more excited for Lydia R. Diamond's Smart People to be the first show of my first season here at the Kitchen Theatre Company," says Producing Artistic Director, Bevin. "Smart People is about big, controversial ideas that are so important to this particular moment. And yet it is also a story about compelling and dynamic human relationships. When I think of Lydia's plays, the first thing that comes to mind are the unique characters she creates and the complex relationships she builds between them. But what I love most about her writing is the way she infuses humor and heart to really drive the story home."
