Cornish professors and dancers fill Capitol Hill venues

Cornish College of the Arts assistant professor of dance, Iyun Ashani Harrison, is having a very busy spring and the college itself is well represented at Capitol Hill events and venues this month.

Harrison performs with Ezra Dickinson this weekend in Seattle Dance Project’s Project 7. Choreographed by Harrison, "The Leaves Have Fallen" is a male duet, set to Philip Glass's Violin Concerto. The work also was seen at BOOST 2014 last month, danced by Harrison and Sam Picart.

Project 7 can be seen at the Broadway Performance Hall, 1625 Broadway, on May 2 and 3 at 8 p.m. and May 4 at 5 p.m. Other works in Project 7 include Cornish College professor of dance Wade Madsen’s "Want” and Amy O'Neal's "Dessa Suites." O'Neal (Cornish Class of 1999) will receive the college's Distinguished Alumni Award at the at the Cornish Commencement later this month.

Harrison’s company Ashani Dances returns to the Broadway Performance Hall in June. The company’s style mixes modern dance and classical ballet with African and Caribbean movement. One of the new works scheduled will use the music of singer and composer Johnaye Kendrick, Cornish's assistant professor of jazz voice.
