This Global Water Dance is a collaboration between The Collective Dance Company and students from Notre Dame Preparatory School 8th grade Performing Arts Dance program. This dance performance will look at clean water as a human rights issue, the ways in which water moves, and how water impacts our daily lives. In addition, the performance will include both live and recorded music and an audience participatory component. The dance will be recorded as a part of the Global Water Dances project, bringing awareness of local and global water issues through dance.
The Historical Society of Baltimore County (HSBC) will be the first of six Maryland sites to host Water/Ways, a traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition, brought to the state by the Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street program. Water/Ways will be open to the public in the historic Almshouse in Cockeysville for six weeks, from May 25 to July 6, 2019, during HSBC’s 60th anniversary year.
From Western Maryland to the lower Eastern Shore, our state is rich with water: it’s part of our history, our culture, our future. Maryland H2O shines the spotlight on it, through Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street tour of the traveling exhibit Water/Ways, the Smithsonian exhibition H2O Today, and engaging programs to spark a statewide discussion about water.
This event is part of Maryland Humanities’ Maryland H2O initiative and #ValueWater programming.
