Global Water Dances - Zadar, Croatia 2015
Generating ripples around the world: Inspiring world dance event to raise consciousness about water crisis
Global Water Dances – Cambridge at Fresh Pond
Weir Meadow at Kingsley Park
Performance at 3:00
On June 24th 2017, artists, environmentalists and community members in more than ninety cities around the globe will come together to celebrate, reflect and inspire solutions for our most beloved resource in Earth: Water.
Global Water Dances, a project now housed at the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies, is calling to dancers and choreographers around the world to create a dance about water in their own communities. “Making connections between local dancers and local organizations is powerful”, says Vannia Ibarguen, current Artistic Director of Global Water Dances.
On June 24th, more than 90 cities will perform, including Delhi, Lima, Paris, Washington DC, Flint, Seoul, Tamale (Ghana), Mexico DF, Sydney, New York, Berlin, just to name a few, and they will be live streamed online. Each location has its own professional choreographer (Audrey Albert King) who will produce an outdoor performance next to water, a four-part site-specific performance. The first two parts will reflect the importance of water as seen by the local community. In the third section, about a thousand dancers in all locations will perform the same movements, and it will conclude with the audience joining part four, performing simple movements that reflects the water cycle.
