Dance at Socrates
AUGUST 4 – 23, 2014
Returning to the park for the second year, Norte Maar and Socrates will together present Dance at Socrates: a residency and performance program that invites New York-based choreographers and their dancers to a develop a site-specific dancework in a unique waterfront environment.
From Monday, August 4 through Saturday, August 23, the program offers opportunities to experience dance in the park daily. Three week-long choreographer residencies will be taking place Monday – Friday on an outdoor stage in the park, leading up to a free public dance performance every Saturday. Throughout their creative process, participating choreographers will be in full view of the public so that visitors will witness cutting-edge dance and movement in the making, and then experience their fully-produced performance.
As part of the Young Choreographers program, Dance at Socrates will also be pairing aspiring teen choreographers (ages 13-18) with experienced Norte Maar choreographers in residence. These week-long residencies will culminate in the presentation of a new short dance, to be featured in the Dance at Socrates Saturday performances.
