Ten Tiny Dances® presents edgy new work by local choreographers as they face the challenge of creating for a stage that is 4 feet by 4 feet by 1.5 feet high. Director Mishele Mennett premiered Ten Tiny Dances® Corvallis at the Majestic to sold-out crowds in Spring of 2018. Originally created in Portland, Oregon, in 2002, by Mike Barber, Ten Tiny Dances® continues to be produced by Mr. Barber, and others, with permission. You’ll see a variety of movement and dance genres, each distilled to its essence. The companion Tiny Art Show, coordinated by AliceAnn Eberman, will offer tiny paintings for purchase on opening night. This year the theme is WATER and the proceeds will go to the Marys River Watershed Council. Let the tide pull you to the Majestic to be amazed, delighted, and touched by this unique performance event.
