Artichoke Dance Company Presents: Immersive Performance Tours of Gowanus

June 18, 2023, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Artichoke Dance Company presents Immersive Performance Tours of Gowanus, June17, 18, 24 and 25, an experience that  combines an informational walking tour of the rapidly changing Gowanus neighborhood with interactive experiences and site performances. Tickets and information here.

The tour brings audiences to sites in Gowanus that are significant to the superfund remediation of the canal and the rezoning of the neighborhood, both of which are currently underway, and environmental issues in the area affecting the community. At stops along the way, Artichoke Dance Company performs short dance works that physicalize the geography’s significance, reflecting on the place and envisioning a sustainable future. Area community organizers and members of the Gowanus Neighborhood Coalition for Justice lead the walking tour, illuminating the neighborhood’s history and present-day realities from an environmental justice perspective.

**Please note that this is a walking tour of Gowanus with a few stops for performances with limited seating. Feel free to bring a folding chair or other mobile seating with you if you are willing to carry it during the duration of the tour. Additionally, dress appropriately for the weather!
