THE TRAVELING SALON, with Lanny Harrison, Christopher Krotky, and Steve Clorfeine
Fri, Aug 16, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Bushel is pleased to host The Traveling Salon, a lively performance event with music, words, characters, and movement. We got a small taste of the salon during a Storytellers event (thank you Lou Marrelli!), and we invited then back to Bushel for a full-length performance. For this trio, collaboration is key, with old, new, and improvisatory work. The evening will culminate in a dance and music jam party!

Doors at 4:30 pm; performance at 5:00. Refreshments will be available.
Entry: $20. Seating is limited; pre-booking recommended.


LANNY HARRISON has created various one-woman shows and has been a member of Meredith Monk’s theater company since 1969. She is a character actress, dancer, poet, and visual artist. Harrison taught theater and movement for 25 years at Gallatin/NYU. She is a founding teacher at West Kortright Center. Her original workshop Intro to Acting is still alive and cooking! Her East Meets West workshop met for many seasons in her studio barn in East Meredith. Harrison has collaborated with musician Christopher Krotky for the past 6 years. She and Steve Clorfeine toured the States and Europe for many years with their show Sense and Nonsense. Harrison’s book, CHARACTERS IN MOTION with editor Jane Zipp & designer/formatter Cindy Dunne will be out this summer. She is very glad indeed to be back at Bushel!

CHRISTOPHER KROTKY is a drummer, producer, and engineer working out of his recording studio in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. As a drummer and Bay Area native, CK has been playing since he was 10 years old. He studied composition and theory at College of Marin and then on to Musicians Institute in Los Angeles. CK has cultivated an approach leading to a love of listening to what a song or piece of music needs while being spontaneous. He believes that sensitivity and force should co-exist in drumming. As a producer and engineer CK has recorded and produced over 250 projects in the last 25+ years ranging in styles from Pop and Rock to Latin jazz, Funk ,Folk, Klezmer, Middle Eastern to Blues, Electronica, Devotional and Brazilian. He is also currently working on composing more music and sound design for indie film , documentary, theater and video projects.

STEVE CLORFEINE has been making work with movement, theater, improvisation, film, words, clay, and collage, for most of his life. He recently published a new collection of poems/short prose – Seeing You Again – and is working on a collection of travel pieces. Fortunate to have Buddhist teachers; to have the opportunity to present my work in many countries; to create gallery installations; and to host a local writing group that’s been meeting for almost 20 years. He has been in theater partnership with Lanny Harrison since 1987!
