The Momentum Dance Series, presented by Amazon, is a site-responsive dance series presented in collaboration with choreographer Peter DiMuro and four local dance companies: Continuum Dance Project, Jean Appolon Expressions, Public Displays of Motion, and Vimoksha Dance Company. Throughout September, each Saturday features one dance company performing twice per day at their selected locations along The Greenway. This series culminates in the Momentum Dance Festival on October 7. All events are free and open to the public.
In addition, Experience Chinatown, organized by our partner Pao Arts Center, will also be taking place in the same park between Continuum’s shows at 11am and 3pm. Be sure to stick around and enjoy these amazing live performances!
Continuum Dance Project (CDP), led by choreographers/co-directors Adriane Brayton and Fernadina Chan, has created its newest work Becoming Water in the Auntie Kay & Uncle Frank Chin Park on The Greenway. Focusing on the Boston Chinatown community, the company has utilized imagery from Cynthia Yee’s ‘Hudson Street Chronicles’ to create a work that honors the experiences of the people of Chinatown, while celebrating their resilient spirit. Exploring the element water as thematic inspiration, the work strives to illuminate the authentic voice of the residents displaced by urban renewal and share their adaptability and toughness. ‘Becoming Water’ reflects on the universal themes of Love, Family, Food, Work, Struggle and Community while engaging with the history and geography of Boston’s Chinatown.
This series is made possible by presenting sponsor Amazon, with additional support from the Greenway Business Improvement District (BID), Meet Boston, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
