“One of the greatest joys of my professional life is to present work that is provocative, unusual, and moving. The recent installation by John Cira of STRETCH / HOOK transformed our gallery. The culminating performance by the remarkable DeAnna Pellecchia, whose intense choreography was paired with the exquisite improvisation of Kenny Werner, was one of those events where multiple art forms were joined and presented at their highest caliber. The sold out, cheering audience will be talking about this very special night for years to come.” – David Kuehn | Executive Director, Cotuit Center for the Arts
