Event description

Description

Enjoy an intimate evening of dances by local Staten Island choreographers. Including work by Melissa West, Simone Johnson, Alyssa Rapp, Rosita Roldan, Laura Neese, Melisande Echanique, and Anjoli Chadha. The work presented explores personal and choreographic histories among other expressions.

The Staten Island Dance Project is an oral history and community archive project that focuses on collecting the stories of dancers on Staten Island. Dance is an ephemeral art form---using the body as the vehicle for expression does not yield itself to archiving in the same ways that other art forms allow. As a result, there is often little measurement of the impact that dance can have on a community. This project seeks to give space for dancers to reflect upon their life's work in a communal way.

Ticket sales for this performance will go to support and maintenance of the SI Dance Project website/community archive.

This project is made possible (in part) by an Community Art Partner Grant from Staten Island Arts, with public funding from the New York State Council on the Arts.
