As I write this I have deadlines looming, emails to be sent, newsletters to be scheduled, my bathroom to be cleaned, grocery shopping to be done, and (don’t forget!) it’s tax season. With all those tasks in mind, I definitely found the overlying theme of CORE Dance Collective’s new performance Frayed Edges relatable.

This dance, choreographed by Kelli Leighton, explores “the feeling of being ‘pulled apart’ by all the demands on our time and energy, to the point where we are losing our sense of self.” Sound familiar?

As someone who tends to jam pack her week with myriad activities and little chance to slow down, I definitely appreciated the time spent relaxing in front of the flowing moves of CORE Dance Collective, taking a break from my otherwise demanding week to unwind.

Frayed Edges is a one-act performance and is followed by Leighton’s 2011 piece, After the Storm (set completely to Mumford & Sons songs) for the second act.

Catch Frayed Edges tonight and tomorrow, 7:30pm, at Benvenuti Performing Arts Center. Tickets are still available, but last night’s performance was sold out, so act quick!
