Sacramento’s very own CORE Dance Collective is at it again with their newest work entitled The Doorway, an entirely new piece by artistic director Kelli Leighton. CORE’s press release for the event says, “The athletic contemporary and jazz movement is inspired by the unique personality of the different rooms in a Victorian mansion. The Doorway stimulates your eyes and ears and toys with your emotions while you to follow the dark and quirky characters entangled within the house.” In a recent e-mail conversation with Blair Cacanando, CORE’s assistant artistic director, she stated “We keep describing to people that it is going to be an all sensory experience, not just a show in a theater.” Perfect! Not only can you see the dancers’ awe-inspiring performances, you can hear them, feel them even (hey, get your mind out of the gutter, we mean feel them emotionally sick-o). The Doorway will premier at Benvenuti Performing Arts Center, located at 4600 Blackrock Drive in Sacramento, on Oct. 22—23, 2010. There will also be performances the following week on Oct. 29—30, 2010. Tickets are just $15 in advance and $20 at the door, for more information visit
