Quarry Dance 6

Presented by Windhover Center for the Performing Arts
Flat Ledge Quarry Access via Granite Pier at 16 Wharf Road , Rockport, MA
Free but donations requested

Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre will use the architecture, cliffs, ledges, and paths surrounding the quarry as the backdrop for the quarry dance. No contact with the water is permitted, as this particular quarry is a reservoir for the town of Rockport water supply. The uniqueness and beauty of the quarry will be embraced and honored. The dramatic and echo-inspiring spaces underneath the Keystone Bridge will be enhanced by the dance.

Russ Gershon, a Boston based saxophonist, arranger, composer and the leader of the globe-trotting ten-piece Either/Orchestra will improvise an accompaniment for the Quarry Dance. This will be his fourth time participating, and he will utilize saxophones, flutes, and percussion instruments. He draws his ideas from jazz and other American popular music traditions, along with Ethiopian and Latin music.

No reservations are required, but please note that the performances are all weather dependent. In case of rain, the performance is cancelled. The performance will last just over one hour.

Seating will be on a first-come-first-served basis and a number of chairs will be provided.  In addition, people are welcome to bring blankets to sit on, as well as bring their own water, snacks,and soft drinks. Please do be advised that space is limited. For further information, please check the Windhover website: www.windhover.org
