Brooklyn Public Library presents Jody Oberfelder Projects in "Walking to Present" (FREE)

Meeting point: Center for Brooklyn History
128 Pierrepont St


Friday, June 3, 2022 - 4:00pm, 5:45pm

Jody Oberfelder Projects

Hello everyone!

Fresh from our London performances at the Victoria & Albert Museum performing an excerpt from Walking to Present: Splash Dance, a jubilant piece performed in the courtyard’s fountain pool, Jody Oberfelder Projects is happy to come home to Brooklyn and offer a version of Walking to Present focused on place and history, monuments and bodies.

Originally commissioned by DANCE München Festival (where we’ll perform May 2023!), this iteration of Walking to Present moves from the Center for Brooklyn History into Cadman Plaza and the Brooklyn War Memorial. How are we living, breathing momentary monuments? How do we imprint time as we move through history?

Walking to Present (Brooklyn) will take place on Friday, June 3, with two performances at 4:00 pm & 5:45 pm.

Join us for this site-inspired walk and performance. It’s FREE!

To RSVP for either performance, please visit the following links:

Meet in front of the Center for Brooklyn History. Wear comfortable shoes and travel light.

Registration is limited to 54 people for each performance.

Concept and choreography by Jody Oberfelder
In collaboration with dancers Ching-I Chang, Vanessa Knouse, Christopher Matthews, Daniel Morimoto, Maya Orchin, Andrew Sanger, and Mark Willis 
Costumes by Katrin Schnabl
Soundscape by Ethel, Smetena, Missy Mazzoli, and Edwin Starr
