As part of the Shaker Arts Council’s “At Home with the Arts (Aha)” summer cultural event, MorrisonDance will perform “Dancing in the Woods” at Shaker Lakes. The performance will be held on July 18, 2014 at 7:45 p.m. (with a pre-concert reception at 7:00 p.m.).

MorrisonDance is one of Northeast Ohio’s most prominent contemporary dance companies who is known for their unconventional presentations of the genre. In this program, the dancers will be performing environmentally based improvisational vignettes among the natural surroundings of the Shaker Lakes Nature Center. As visitors stroll along the forested trails they will be able to catch glimpses of wood nymphs performing in various “dance conversations”.

During its fifteen years of existence, MorrisonDance has performed a variety of site specific works in such diverse locals as beaches, converted warehouses, bridges, docks, botanical gardens, community gardens as well as the Icing Research Tunnel. Due to the intimacy of the Shaker Lakes trails, visitors will have the chance to see the dancers close up in an informal and magical way.

Tickets are $30 per person. To purchase, go to www.shakerartscouncil.org; call 216-916-9360, or send a check to PMB 232, 16781 Chagrin Blvd., Shaker Heights, OH, 44121. E-mail aha@shakerartscouncil.org for further information.
