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.

Public Displays of Motion has woven a metaphoric response to Italian North End heritage, conjuring up some myths- old and newly created- about our ancestors, celebrating the saints and sinners of our lineage. The performance occurs in two parts designed to elicit a smile or two, and a yearning for an Italian pastry: first, an installation of saints waiting for their parade and second, a procession in search of its festival.

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.
