Global Water Dances 2019
We’re were thrilled to be part of this international event, during which communities around the world “dance for safe water everywhere.” As host of the Seattle Global Water Dances, KSD presented excerpts from our recent premiere Sea Change Within Us, also joined by Community GWD Dancers from Kaleidoscope and Mosaic Dance Company, Splinter Dance, UW Dance and professional contemporary Seattle dance community, who took part in a movement choir moving through Lake Union Park.
Global Water Dances (GWD) performances at each site highlight a local water issue and take place near a related body of water. Choreographers, dance groups, organizations, water activists and members of the community gather to take action, to solve their immediate water problems. This worldwide event, linked throughout the day via broadcast and social media, challenges countless observers, locally and online, to deepen their understanding about the importance of water in communities the world over.
