Traces, a day of outdoor dance happenings, will celebrate the change into summer, dancing in public spaces, and connection of community. We will begin with a story based movement workshop focused on changes in the landscape that affect the health of the river. Then stay to enjoy a tour of water-themed dances at the rivers edge! We ask all attendees to wear a mask at all times, and keep a 6 foot distance from those not in your pod.
10-11am The Moving Landscape with Michele Braun and Mary Chris DeBelina
11:30 am performances featuring Isadora Snapp, MC DeBelina, Avi Waring, Katalina Corp, Nicole Ullman, Denise Cupoli, Zoe Marr Hilliard and Kristen Whitman
Traces at Montpelier will take place at North Branch Nature Center. The Nature Center is a 28 acres forest and field preserve with the main buildings situated along the Winooski River. The workshop and 2 of the performance spaces will be accessible to those with limited mobility. When using the main parking lot, audience members must either be able to walk up a short flight of stairs or navigate a grass pathway in order to access the workshop space and facilities. For those who require more direct access, there is an entrance that can be used as a dropoff point. It is also possible to drive close to 1 of the other performance spaces but it does include a short walk on a grass pathway. Each performance area will have a few chairs and/or a bench available. https://northbranchnaturecenter.org/
