Join Dance Exchange and the Schuylkill Center this weekend for a unique
event where site-specific dance meets nature walk meets ecological art
installation.  Four animated walks on Saturday and Sunday will take
participants on a journey with water through their bodies in a unique
forested setting in Philadelphia.

This is the first time in nearly a decade that the Schuylkill Center has
commissioned a new site-specific dance work, and culminates a year-long
collaboration with Dance Exchange.

Details below.  Hope you can join us!

Culminating a year of research and artmaking at the Schuylkill Center, Dance
 Exchange <http://danceexchange.org/> will lead a series of animated hikes
on our trails that connect participants to local ecology and reflect on the
ways that water shapes our lives.  These hour-long experiences will weave
together performance, installation, science engagements, and other
opportunities, surfacing concerns and questions about the Schuylkill River
and local waterways, and contributing to our understandings about the
impacts of climate change on the region.

Executive Artistic Director of Dance Exchange Cassie Meador is
collaborating with a multidisciplinary team of artists and scientists
(Elizabeth Johnson, Jame McCray, and Zeke Leonard, along with Schuylkill
Center staff) and a cohort of local artists to create this unique
interdisciplinary event.

Dance Exchange <http://danceexchange.org/> is a Takoma Park, MD-based
non-profit arts organization committed to dancemaking and creative
practices that engage individuals and communities of all ages to cultivate
a deeper understanding of themselves and their world, and to open up the
questions at the heart of their lives. Founded in 1976 by Liz Lerman and
under the artistic direction of Cassie Meador since 2011, Dance Exchange
 creates dances by asking four questions: Who gets to dance? Where is the
dance happening? What is it about?  Why does it matter? For the past
decade, much of Dance Exchange’s work has focused on the intersection of
the arts and sciences and has resulted in collaborations between scientists
in the fields of biology, physics, ecology, genetics and more.
