(DVP) present REVIVAL 3: It’s About Time at Claremont Park
Company: Dances For A Variable Population (DVP)
Venue: Claremont Park
Location: Bronx, NY
Celebrating women, dance and the beauty of age, Dances For A Variable Population (DVP) will present a performance and an interactive workshop of CLAREMONT PARK BRONX DANCES. The performance will feature highlights from REVIVAL 3: It’s About Time, an outdoor public dance project featuring 10 legendary dance artists and 50 non-professional senior dancers, who, in some ways, allow us to become time-travelers. Through their memories and dancing bodies, we can journey to the dance traditions of other times. REVIVAL 3: It’s About Time, connects a multi-generational dance company with female choreographers in their 60s, 70s and 80s. Now, as part of DVP’s 10th year of free performances in iconic spaces, Claremont Park Bronx Dances will be on Saturday, September 21 at 3PM on the Handball Court in Claremont Park, the Bronx, followed by with an ALL TOGETHER DANCE workshop at 4PM. All performances are free.
These events, Dances For A Variable Population welcomes choreographers Shirley Black Brown Coward (Universal Dance Theater, Broadway), Tina Bush (Forces of Nature), Ara Fitzgerald (Daniel Nagrin’s Workgroup), Ellen Graff (Martha Graham Company), Elizabeth Keen (Paul Taylor Dance Company, Helen Tamiris), Myna Majors (The WNBA N.Y. Liberty Timeless Torches), Sandra Rivera (founding member of Ballet Hispanico), Alice Teirstein (Young Dancemakers Company), Marnie Thomas Wood (Martha Graham Company) along with artistic director of DVP Naomi Goldberg Haas. Washington Square Dances 2019 and Claremont Park Bronx Dances will also feature over 50 seniors from DVP’s free MOVEMENT SPEAKS® programs which take place at over 19 sites across the city.
