Site-specific integrative Work



The Gowanus Canal was given Superfund status by the US government because it is one of the most polluted waterways in the United States. This program provides education and participatory activities and produces a performance spectacle along the canal. Throughout the spring 2019, we will host free dance, drum and costume making workshops that invite community members to become part of the performance celebration. We are working with area schools and community groups to create performance works exhibits, educational material and interactive experiences around the Canal will also be featured during the festival.

Festival day: June 15, 2019 (Global Water Dances Day)

This program is support, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, as well as the Brooklyn Arts Council and Harkness Foundation.
