CreateART/NOoSPHERE Arts/The Newtown Creek Alliance

NOoSPHERE Arts X CreateART X The Newtown Creek Alliance Present:

A Monarch's Journey: an Insectageddon satellite event in collaboration with The Highline

An immersive site-specific dance & music performance among the wildflowers of industrial Greenpoint inspired by the migration of Monarchs from their overwintering home in Mexico up to Canada and back again each year.

These site-specific performances, curated by NOoSPHERE Arts’ dance partner CreateART, will bring attention to the ancient evolution and epic migration of the imperiled monarch butterfly while highlighting the opportunities in urban areas to support these creatures through the restoration of critical habitat - even in highly industrial areas.

Choreographers: Rebecca Margolick + Dasol Kim // Erick Montes

Specially composed musical narrative: Katy Gunn

2 Sessions on Saturday, September 25th:

  • 3 PM-4 PM (KW Rooftop to Paige Ave)
  • 5 PM-6 PM (Paige Ave to KW Rooftop)

Each performance will be about 50 minutes long and will include walking alongside the performers for about 25 minutes.

Location & path of the performance: Kingsland Wildflowers Rooftop Meadows through the Newtown Creek Nature Walk and along the Paige Avenue Pollinator Pathway & back.

Wear comfortable shoes and bring water

This project will also be featured virtually in St. Petersburg, Russia, as part of the 8th Art Prospect International Public Art Festival: Forms of Unity
