Flickering Glades Selected for V IMARP
How special that our film Flickering Glades, created by Claudio Marcotulli, was selected V IMARP – Mostra Internacional de Dança – Imagens em Movimento in Sao Paolo, Brazil. It premiered at ScreenDance Miami Festival 2020 and was also chosen for The World Outside: Screendance in Nature as part of American Dance Festival 2020.
NWD Projects is proud to be the organizing institution for National Water Dance nationwide
National Water Dance is a biennial event comprised of an artist-driven collective of dancers, students, educators and community members who create simultaneous performances across the United States. The 5th National Water Dance will take place in 2022.
Every location has its own organizer and choreographer. Here in Miami it began with myself and Michelle Grant-Murray, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Dance at Miami Dade College, Kendall Campus who assisted me in this year’s National Water Dance/Miami. As we planned and organized for our performance on Historic Virginia Key Beach as part of MDC Live Arts EcoCultura Fest, we had to do a 180 degree turn and set our “sites” on the two-dimensional world of ZOOM!
