A choreography of actions and problems, of fantasy and reality, Tiny Slopes riffs off the challenge of learning to skateboard. Four professional dancers navigate this new skill live, in a performed extrapolation of what it is to face risk and embrace your own fears and short-comings. Infiltrating the work are four skate-savvy tweens, at once guiding spirits and apparitions of former selves, or perhaps just much-needed mentors. Continuing director/choreographer Nat Cursio’s ongoing interest in vulnerability and resilience, Tiny Slopes playfully considers how we change as we age, asking “What else can we do, what else can we be?”
