By River & Industry - A Walking Tour de Danse
In this dynamic outdoor performance, the audience walks to locations where dancers of diverse backgrounds and styles present contrasts of river and city: Denver's boom-bust personality, rich and poor, nature and industry, serenity and struggle.
The program also draws inspiration from the 40th anniversary of "By River and Wharf", a 1976 outdoor dance performance in London. In that project, organized by X6 Dance Space, Maedee Dupres performed as a collective member, a company member and as a soloist with many friends and colleagues near the Tower Bridge and Wharf district in London.
Here in Denver, "By River and Industry" starts at a living arts centre. From there, a walking tour of the neighborhood is the stage on which modern dance offers a unique view of Denver's roots and character.
Please join Maedee Dupres & Dancers, Mary Lynn Lewark's Projekt Move, Angela Marquez and Maggie Chapman's Avatar Movement Dance Company, Chris Harris' Colorado Youth Dance Theatre and Whitney Waugh Dance, as they take their wonderful collaboration to the river and neighborhood industries. This site-specific choreography creates an infinite and profound relationship among dancers and audience.
After the performance, a symbolic walk brings performers and audience back into the centre for refreshments and lively conversations. Pat Isaacs will show her new artwork at the reception studio.
Walking is required. Wear appropriate shoes and clothes for the weather. You must be able to walk briskly on both pavement and grassy areas to keep up with the group. Kids ages 10 and above.
