18apr4:00 pmDigital Performance: National Water Dance 2020Dancing for Our Lives

Event Details

“National Water Dance is first and foremost a Movement Choir—a collective body of dancers and movers physically engaged in drawing attention to and action on water issues. For 2020 our focus is on the climate crisis.
We believe in the power of dance as a means to somatic empathy—Dance speaks to the physical connection we have with ourselves as ecological systems existing in community with all other systems. We understand that in order to save the Earth we must first recognize that we are in interdependence with all living things. National Water Dance is creating a community of dancers that reestablishes our connection with each other.”
Dance in your bathtub, backyard, by a creek, in a kiddy pool, in your kitchen, etc. Engage is a solo dance performance (or 6ft away from another performer, less than a group of 10) to draw attention to water issues and action. DanceATL’s water site is the Chattahoochee River: https://chattahoochee.org/
