Corrie Befort received 2009 GAP Award funding to help defray costs associated with development, including rehearsal space and artist fees, in the creation of “Man On The Beach,” a new dance and sound piece selected for On the Boards’ Northwest New Works Festival in Seattle. The piece will be a series of darkly humorous, highly physical, sound-soaked vignettes, including a duet in which a quiet man walks with his head in a cloud of swirling, crashing white chairs.
Corrie received 2004 GAP Award funding to assist with post-production costs for What Remains—an evening length dance performance—including final payments to contributing artists and residual space and equipment rental costs. What Remains premiered in May of this year at Seattle’s Velocity MainSpace Theater and featured the choreography of Corrie in collaboration with Seattle composer Tom Baker who created the score.
