Danielle Russo Performance Project Premieres 'Final Notice'
On September 25 & 26, 2021, Danielle Russo Performance Project (DRPP) will premiere Final Notice, a free, outdoor performance series in Red Hook and South Williamsburg celebrating the launch of DRPP’s interactive mobile app of the same name. The culmination of a two-year collaboration with Youth Leaders at Red Hook Initiative and El Puente, the #FinalNotice map app exposes climate change, environmental racism, and historical erasure on the Brooklyn waterfront, with an explicit emphasis on neighborhoods with Superfund and Brownfield sites.
DRPP artists and Youth Leaders will present site-specific performances activating the app. Audience members will be invited to download the #FinalNotice app at the launch event, available in English and Spanish.
On Saturday, September 25, performances by DRPP dancers will begin at 4pm at Grand Ferry Park, at the intersection of Grand and River Streets, just north of Domino Park. Audiences will be led to various locations along the coastline and surrounding neighborhood, arriving at El Puente’s ¡WEPA! Festival at 5 pm on Roebling St. between South 4th and South 2nd Streets.
On Sunday, September 26, DRPP will host a community gathering at 2pm at the RETI Center’s Blue City barge located at 701 Columbia Street, at the intersection of the Erie Basin and Gowanus Bay. Performances will begin at 2:30pm and travel north through Red Hook and Coffey Parks.
