The fourth annual Solar-Powered Dance Series, hosted by Solar One, kicks off today at 6 PM in Stuyvesant Cove Park. From today through July 26th, and July 31st through August 2nd, the Series will feature performances by thirteen emerging choreographers who work in a variety of dance styles. Solar electricity will be generated onsite to power the audio part of the performance, and the outdoor stage is recycled (I’d be curious to learn more about what exactly the stage is made of). It’s wonderful to see cultural events and environmental initiatives joining forces, and I think there’s a lot of potential for performance groups and environmental organizations to collaborate more often.
