WHITE WAVE pushes the envelope, presenting a series of main stage and site-specific works in DUMBO. Designed to be interdisciplinary, these pieces are collaborations between choreographers, composers, and live musicians. From small, intimate spaces (a park bench) to grand ones (the sweeping staircase at Granite Prospect) these collaborations will interact with the beautiful DUMBO waterfront. The times and locations of these performances will be posted ahead of time on WHITE WAVE’s website and Facebook page, and we will live-tweet the performances as they happen.
Sunday (Sept 26th) features family programming with a free class session of Hip Hop/B-boy and Modern Dance on the Brooklyn Bridge Park lawn for kids of all ages presented by WHITE WAVE’S Kids Can Dance program. Afterward, twelve Festival artists take the stage for a family-friendly program featuring the best in contemporary dance for 2010.
The 2010 DUMBO DANCE FESTIVAL comes to a close Sunday, September 26th with a GRAND FINALE performance on the scenic Fulton Ferry Landing. The GRAND FINALE will feature renowned dance companies including Jennifer Muller/the Works, Enzo Celli and Botega dance from Italy and WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company, all performing against the dazzling backdrop of New York City at night.
