A DAY OF DANCING IN PUBLIC FOR WATER SITE-SPECIFIC DANCE ACTIVISM IN SIX CONTINENTS
A film about a worldwide day of community dance for water.
On Sunday, June 4 at 2:00 pm Rosendale Theatre will host the Hudson Valley premiere of Global Water Dances, a film featuring selected shorts from the first worldwide Global Water Dances day in 2011. Global Water Dances is a worldwide dance — linked throughout the day and afterwards via broadcast media and the internet — in which countless dancers, musicians, and observers, celebrate and honor the importance of fresh water.
Global Water Dances, the film, showcases selected shorts from a day of site-specific community dances by, in or with water in six continents. Natasha Alhadeff-Jones – co-director of Global Water Dances New York – will do a Q&A afterwards.
Global Water Dances – the LIVE event – takes place on one day in June every two years. The next Global Water Dances will take place on Saturday June 24, 2017. Over 90 sites in six continents are already registered. Everyone is invited to observe or participate. The nearest site will be by the D&H Canal House in High Falls, NY at 2 pm. See nywater.org.
Dance Film Sundays, a series that started in June 2010 under the auspices of the Rosendale Theatre Collective, is usually held on the 2nd Sunday of every month at Rosendale Theatre.
