Lock Step

5 dancers, 60 minutes

Ready to tour to locations along and near the Erie Canal.

To celebrate the Bicentennial of the Erie Canal, Artichoke Dance was commissioned by the Waterfront Alliance and Waterfront Museum to create Lock Step, a performance reflecting movement in and along the Erie Canal’s route and through its lock system. Lock Step leads audiences on a journey that reflects the nature of moving water, activities that took place during early navigation years, and the connectivity that the Erie Canal enabled.

Community engagement and educational add ons are available for this work.
