For this June 24th 2017 we are encouraging choreographers to produce a site specific dance with a big group of dancers, when possible, and involve the community in the creative process. Each dance will be performed at a time and location determined by you. Each group will produce a 4-part site-specific performance; the first two parts local and latter two global:
Section I. Ritual: An opening ceremony specific to each site.
Section II. Local Dance: A dance created by choreographers from that area, using locally-based music, around specified local issues with water.
Section III. Global Dance: Simultaneous choreography done by all the performers worldwide to the same piece of music, connecting participants and audience globally.
Section IV. Participatory Dance: Audience participation in a very simple movement sequence. Some sites will teach the moves right during this Finale, while at other sites the audience will have learned prior to performance.
