Global Water Dances
Global Water Dances celebrates water and life through the art of dance. In parallel, we are aware that environmental actions are needed. Global Water Dances has staged four worldwide events in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017. One day, every two years, 80+ cities from around the world participate in the Global Water Dances event. From Beijing, China to Zadar, Croatia, choreographers take on local water issues through workshops, dance activism and dialogue. On June 24, 2017, the Flint, MI community came together for their first-ever site of Global Water Dances. This event was a celebration of togetherness and de-victimization through dance in several sites throughout the city. As a project, it showcases the strength of Flint’s artists as agents of change and activators of positive momentum.
