Coronado School of the Arts 640 D Avenue Coronado, CA 92118
On May 17 and 18, the Coronado School of the Arts Conservatory of Classical and Contemporary Dance presents Off the Page, an evening of original dances inspired by the words of notable and emerging poets. Faculty and student choreographers have each selected a poem with personal or social relevance and created choreography by analyzing its text and the writer’s biography. Dance and poetry are woven together throughout the evening, as actors from the Conservatory of Musical Theatre and Drama perform several poems between dances. Featured dances draw from works by Maya Angelou, Emily Dickinson, Victor Hugo, Naomi Shihab Nye, and more. Join us as we explore new intersections of body and language.
