Kinesis Project dance theatre presents Traces of Us, a site-specific dancein free performances on Saturday, July 21 and Sunday, July 22, 2018 at 4:30pm & 7:30pm in Waterfront Park, 1401 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA.
Kinesis Project dance theatre, led by choreographer Melissa Riker, creates a magical world along Seattle's historic Waterfront Park. Experience first-hand as this gorgeous dance appears in windows, on ledges, steps and in fountains; add a live band, an epic orange dress and beautiful costumes that strew multi-colored sand.... until the entire Waterfront Park is transformed into a shimmering evening playground.
Traces of Us is a site-specific dance about time, memory, perspective and connection. The performance is a third, powerful collaboration between Melissa Riker and Kinesis Project with costume designer Asa Thornton (Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Broadway's Pippin) and Seattle's own visual artist Celeste Cooning, famous for her large-scale, hand-cut sculptural textiles for public spaces (Pioneer Square, Bumbershoot, New York, and across the U.S. and Canada.) Experience the WaterFront Park in a way you'll never forget; with humor, beauty, amazing art and gorgeous dancing.
Friends of Waterfront Seattle is the City of Seattle's nonprofit partner helping to build the park and ensure its lasting success. Following the public-benefit partnership model, we educate the public about the park and its benefits, raise philanthropic funds to build the park, and will partner with the City to manage and program the park long-term. Our goal is to make the central waterfront a public mixing ground where all communities can share cultural, recreational, and civic experiences in a beautiful environment. Waterfront Seattle / Friends is a founding member of the High Line Network, a movement in cities across the world to reclaim underutilized infrastructure and reimagine it as public space. Explore the future park at our project showroom, Waterfront Space, located at 1400 Western Avenue in Seattle, and open Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 5pm.
