  • Casco Bay Ferry 56 Commercial Street Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

Created by Laura K. Nicoll for Portland Dance Month

Featuring: Janoah Bailin, Kyle Sandberg, Michelle Tsiakaros, Kerry Anderson, Heather Flor Cron

As part of the First Friday Art Walk

Begins at 5pm at the pier at Casco Bay Ferry Terminal. Ends at 7pm at the offices of Creative Portland, followed by the Promenade Dancer Rendezvous to kick off Portland Dance Month 2019.

An ensemble of performers journey across Portland during First Friday Art Walk. Their movement is an improvised response to the built and natural environment. The project is an invitation to fellow pedestrians to reflect on and celebrate a moving human body, and the dances that are all around us, in public space.

As you watch, you are welcome to participate in whatever way feels natural to you. If you document the performance, please share on social media and use #PortlandDanceMonth or tag @PortlandDanceMonth so that we can enjoy and share your photos and video. All that we ask is that you are respectful of your surroundings and the people there with you.
