Bushwick, Brooklyn-Ballet Y Bushwick continues Norte Maar’s mission to bring together collaborative projects in the arts with an interest in developing community relationships. This will be the first ballet event at the Bushwick Starr, which aims to foster an open social environment for artists and audiences to interact within the growing neighborhood of Bushwick. In the tradition of Norte Maar, the event is co-produced with the Bushwick Starr and a collaboration with Gleich Dances NY/London. Program length approximately 60 minutes.
The evening was a collection of dance works loosely bound together through scenes of Bushwick, peeking through windows of activity, framing our vision and revealing or concealing what lies beyond. Costumes designed by Luis Velasques.
