      EVENT DETAILS
      CORNINGWORKS: the waiting room

      Using the catalyst of a little known Jewish tradition, where from the moment of death until the moment of burial, a body should not be left unattended, a SHOMER (guard) is engaged to sit through the long over night vigil. What is it like sitting in a room alone with death for hours? Through the integral use of creative projections, theatrical innovations, and Cornings poignant choreographic style, this group of performing and visual artists collaboratively create a stunning, often times surreal and otherworldly experience, proffering a transcendent work that touches more on life, than on death. How can it not? choreography by BETH CORNING set design by STEPHANIE MAYER STAHLEY lighting by IAIN COURT projection design by JESSICA MEDENBACH, JAKOB MARSICO performed by JOHN CARSON, BETH CORNING, JACOB GOODMAN, CATHERINE MEREDITH the waiting room is made possible in part with generous support from: Allegheny Regional Asset District (ARAD), Anonymous Donor, CORNINGWORKS Board of Directors, The Fine Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, Individual Donors, The McKinney Charitable Foundation through the PNC Charitable Trusts Review Committee, PA Council on the Arts , The Pittsburgh Foundation, Port Authority of Allegheny County, WYEP & WESA
