"Recipes Our Mothers Gave Us" world premiere dance theater production with food



The 2014 Glue Factory Project dancetheater production created by internationally and nationally renowned performers over the age of 40.

An American, an Asian, and a French/Swede explore societal recipes that season one's life.

Lines we were fed, words we imbibed, the recipes ... tried.

'RECIPES' for success, for failure, for nutrition, for starvation -- the world intrudes, the ingredients reinterpreted!

created & performed by Beth Corning, with award-winning guest artists Maria Cheng & Francoise Fournier

special music composed by Mary Ellen Childs

A complimentary "TASTING EVENT" will follow each performance hosted by a local guest celebrity chef

This show runs from Wednesday January 15 through Sunday January 19 -- however we're selecting the Sunday matinee performance for the Meetup as it features a special PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN Admission. However, if you'd like to suggest one of the other perfomances, this would also be great.

    Glib, clever and thoroughly engaging. The food was pretty tasty too.

    Hope everyone is looking forward to Sunday's show. As a reminder, there will likely be a very good crowd since it has been getting great reviews (since it opened on Wednesday) while Sunday's show is the closing performance with pay-what-you-can admission (although many people still buy advance tickets at the normal price). Thus, it is recommended that people arrive early to the show.

    I'll be wearing something easy to spot - brown coat, black sweater, jeans, and ivory scarf.

    People can gather in the theater lobby to meet/mingle in the lobby before the show (near the bar area where there are some tables) and then afterwards while enjoying food.

    I am anxious to go! I'm a retired dancer/dance teacher. I've never been to this theater, is the free parking easy to find?

      yes, there is plenty of free start parking near the New Hazlett Theater. I'm expecting a nice crowd tomorrow, so don't come too late.

    Hope everyone is looking forward to Sunday's show which has been getting great reviews and also selling very well. As a reminder, this is a General Admission show and Sunday's performance is pay-what-you-can.

    General Admission means there is no assigned seating, so the sooner you get there, the more likely it is that you'll have your pick of seats.

    I expect there to be a big crowd, so it would be best for you not to arrive too late. I'm planning on being at the New Hazlett by 1:15 PM or so. I'll send another post with what I'll be wearing. We will meet/mingle in the lobby before the show (near the bar area where there are some tables) and then afterwards while enjoying food.
