*Note the date change – This will now be held on Sunday, October 8*
Our annual Day of Dance is an accessible, family-friendly program, featuring outdoor performances throughout the park. The festival’s theme this year is “Story.” Inspired by Ground For Sculpture’s collection, remarkable choreographers have created new, site-specific dance works that explore how we have all shaped and been shaped by story. What stories touch us, move us, and invite us more deeply into our aliveness? What stories do we resist, which ones do we embrace, what stories are uniquely ours to tell? Come experience an extraordinary afternoon! This is a festival that brings you to multiple spaces at GFS, so please wear comfortable shoes…not only the performers will be moving!
There will be two performances – 12:00PM and 2:30PM
Featured choreographers are Esther Baker-Tarpaga, Jenna Charko, Heidi Cruz-Austin, Kiana Rosa Fischer, Shuning Huang, Sri Thina Subramaniam & Aparna Shankar, Jennifer Turnbull, and Cierra Woods.
