February 11 || Extradition Plays Corner || music + dance celebrating the work of Philip Corner

PWNW hosts an evening of music + dance as part of a Extradition’s multi-weekend, multi-venue festival celebrating the work of composer Philip Corner, who, since the 1950s, has composed thousands of works exploring the intersection of the classical tradition, post–John Cage experimentalism, and a desire to forge true creative collaboration between composer and performer.

Dancers Linda Austin (PWNW Artistic Director) and colleague Danielle Ross join musicians Loren Chasse, Annie Gilbert, Matt Hannafin, Branic Howard, Maxx Katz, Juniana Lanning, Caspar Sonnet, and Stephanie Lavon Trotter for this special event!
