Trouble at the U.S.-Canadian border again for a traveling artist wanting to share his expertise. Canadian dancer Yannick Matthon, one of the stars of Crystal Pite’s troupe Kidd Pivot, was scheduled to start rehearsals of excerpts from Pite’s brilliant “Dark Matters” for the Cornish Dance Theater Fall 2014 Concert. He was also slated to present a lecture/demonstration about Pite’s choreography on Sept. 19.
“Unfortunately, there was a problem in securing his visa in a timely manner and he was unable to cross the border in time,” says Cornish director of communications Rosemary Jones. “‘Dark Matters’ has been removed from the fall program, although we hope to be able to do it in the future. The Sept. 19 lecture was canceled.”
The Cornish Dance Theater Fall 2014 Concert will still happen in November as scheduled, featuring choreography by Iyun Ashani Harrison, José Limón, Vivian Little, Michele Miller and Amy O’Neal. 8 p.m. Nov. 21 and 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Nov. 22, Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center, 201 Mercer St., Seattle; $5-$10 (1-800-838-3006 or www.brownpapertickets.com).
