Erie Basin Park

There will be more than Swedish meatballs, affordable furniture and a pretty view during the Columbus Day weekend on the Ikea Brooklyn waterfront. Dance Theatre Etcetera’s 2nd annual Dance on the Greenway, a festival of site-specific dance, will take center stage on Saturday October 12th with two shows at 1 PM and 4 PM. Each show runs just over an hour and features the work of five diverse choreographers who represent a mash up of styles from Dance Hall to Cunningham techniques. Rain Date: Sunday October 13th . There is also a special panel talk on waterfront resiliency from 3 pm- 4 pm moderated by Pratt professor Gita Nandan with Red Hook stakeholders. Enter at Dwight Street and Beard Street, IKEA parking lot, Red Hook Brooklyn.
Site specific choreographers include:
- Former Cunningham dancer Rashaun Mitchell (“Mitchell, who danced with special sensual intensity for Merce Cunnigham for eight years before the company disbanded in 2012, is only now hitting his stride as a choreographer, but he has already shown a keen curiosity about emotional extremity.”-Financial Times)
- Veteran choreographer and Red Hook Resident Shannon Hummel (“Enormously sophisticated. The choreographer quivers with subtle emotion, like the writing of Virginia Woolf, to stage pictures that remain beautifully calibrated whether the figures are still or running amok. Do I hear anyone suggesting a Bessie nomination?”-The Village Voice)
- Up and coming choreographer Suzanne Beahrs has her MFA in Dance from NYU/Tisch School of the Arts, her work has been featured at the 92nd St. Y, FAB Festival, the Dumbo Dance Festival, Dance Now[NYC] Raw Festival, and Merce Cunningham Studios.
- Emerging Red Hook choreographers Kandice Ross and Solomon Goodwin.
In between shows from 3:00 pm -4:00 pm, there will be a panel talk moderated by architect Gita Nandan on Rethinking Red Hook: Pushing Towards a Sustainable Future with Red Hook waterfront stakeholders: Greg O’Connell (President/CEO The O’Connell Organization); Dan Wiley (Community Liaison- Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez); John Quadrozzi, Jr. (Quadrozzi Enterprises™); Tony Schloss (Red Hook Initiative) with Digital Stewards and Ian Marvey (Co-Founder and Executive Director/Added Value).
