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. 

Vimoksha’s mission is to bring the healing power of movement to different communities to empower, inspire and connect people. This work, Salt Soaked, delves into immigration’s stories, portraying struggles and aspirations for a new start. It vividly portrays the uphill battles of those seeking a fresh beginning while grappling with a sense of limbo – a constant push against an immovable force, a feeling of being trapped without control or the ability to move forward. The streets reveal the unwavering determination of immigrants, leaving a lasting imprint on the ground they walk upon. The historic Rowes Wharf on the left, a symbol of trade and arrivals, silently tells the tale of the many people who came seeking safety and a better life in faraway lands.

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.
