Returning for its third summer season, Norte Maar’s Dance at Socrates announces its 2015 choreographer residencies and free public performance schedule.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dear friend Fern Dog.
Norte Maar, the innovative arts organization that played an integral role in creating the vibrant Bushwick arts scene, is relocating to the Cypress Hills area of East New York.
Another Adirondack Summer! As Norte Maar continues to be a leading force in Brooklyn, many may not realize that the organization was originally founded on the shores of Lake Champlain in the summer of 2004 by curator Jason Andrew and choreographer Julia K. Gleich, playing a major role in revitalizing the arts in the North Country from 2004-2010. Through exhibitions at the farmhouse in Rouses Point and ballet performances in a converted ice rink at the Civic Center, Norte Maar became a signature advocate and presenter of the visual, literary, and performing arts connecting an emerging artistic community within the North Country.
