BREAKING GROUND: Mystery Site Revealed!
Dancing in the Streets has announced Dancing in the Streets has announced Floyd Bennett Field as the mystery site for BREAKING GROUND: A Dance Charrette! Directed and conceived by Joanna Haigood as "an invigorating exercise for seasoned choreographers," five choreographers will spend five days creating five works in response to this extraordinary site.
Keep up with their creative process on the Breaking Ground blog. Charrette is a term that was coined in the 1800s referring to an intensive course for architectural students in Paris who were given 72 hours to solve a complex design problem and then place their plans in carts ["charrettes"] and rush them to the École des Beaux Arts.
Join Dancing in the Streets and choreographers Jonah Bokaer, Tania Isaac, Stephan Koplowitz, Gus Solomons jr and Nami Yamamoto for an exciting twist on an architectural project produced specifically for one of Brooklyn's most intriguing spaces.
