About the Performance
The Cornish Dance Theater Fall 2011 concert includes a site specific dance that falls decidedly out of the box. Rehearsed and performed at the I-5 Colonnade Park, the dance is staged literally under the freeway, the performers swarming over the sloping landscape of the mountain bike skills park. Choreographer and Cornish alumna Alia Swersky collaborated with her dancers and the space itself in the creation of this original work.
The dance starts near the northeast entrance to the park along the Lakeview Blvd E 1700 block, and migrates south for approximately 30 minutes. Ushers will assist the audience to prime viewing areas. Audience members should dress for the terrain and note that seating will not be provided. Comfortable, solid shoes and layers for wind chill or rain are recommended.

I-5 Colonnade Park is located beneath I-5, south of E Howe St, between the Eastlake and Capitol Hill neighborhoods. It is accessible from Boylston Ave E, Harvard Ave E, Lakeview Blvd E, Franklin Ave E, East Newton St, East Howe St, and East Blaine St.
