Throughout August, Socrates Sculpture Park partners with Norte Maar, renowned for their cross-disciplinary collaborative projects, in a new summer series bringing New York based choreographers and their dancers to Socrates. Each week during the month of August, a new choreographer will be in residence at the park making new dances on site in full view of the public who will witness the working process of these dance makers and experience fully produced free public performance Saturdays throughout August at 3pm.

Visitors to the park will enjoy not only the unique contemporary sculpture the park is well known for, but also cutting edge dance and movement in the making. A related public project will be offered to young choreographers (details to follow). A special stage has been built for this 4-week series.
