Tiffany Rea-Fisher returns to the stage with LaneCoArts after a 5-year hiatus December 3-5
Choreographer, dancer, curator, and Elisa Monte Dance Associate Artistic Director, Tiffany Rea-Fisher returns to the stage December 3-5, 2015 after a five-year performance hiatus. She has been taking breaks from performing, returning to the stage with Elisa Monte Dance only once every five years. This year, Fisher has accepted a different challenge, joining LaneCoArts as guest artists on the upcoming program: Dash | One Evening Three Premieres.
Committed to supporting female artistic directors, Fisher's non-profit, Inception to Exhibition (ITE), presented Lane Gifford's LaneCoArts in 2014 where she "was blown away by her vision as a choreographer." Performing a dance work created by an artist other than herself or Elisa Monte in 10 years, Tiffany Rea-Fisher will open the show with the re-imagined solo "Striptease."
