Erie Basin Park

Red Hook marks the one year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy with a festival of site-specific dances created by five diverse choreographers whose works will explore the architecture, artifacts, vistas, nooks and crannies of the Erie Basin Park behind IKEA’s Brooklyn store.
The 2nd annual Dance on the Greenway will feature works by veteran choreographer and Red Hook resident Shannon Hummel, emerging choreographers Suzanne Beahrs, Rashaun Mitchell (Rashaun Silas Dance), and local Red Hook Brooklyn dance superstars Solomon Goodwin and Kandice Ross. Rich in history, steeped in controversy, the Ikea Esplanade as animated by the works of these artists, will reveal Brooklyn history, politics and local manifestations of global economic trends.
In between shows from 3:15pm-4:00pm, there will be a panel talk moderated by architect Gita Nandan on Rethinking Red Hook: Pushing Towards a Sustainable Future with waterfront stakeholders and urban planners focusing on efforts underway and planned to create a more resilient and sustainable Red Hook waterfront as it faces future climate change related events.
Funding for this project has been provided by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation as well the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
