Pioneering dancers Zena Bibler and Katie Schetlick plan to bring a new dance festival to the little fishing town of Wellfleet on Cape Cod. Bibler writes, "We are serving a community that has little to no dance programming, but we are also benefiting from the opportunity to create singular dance experiences out in nature--dunes, kettle ponds, broken down railroad bridges...."
We are bringing a really great team of dancers (mostly from New York City) to engage in a residency for the first four days in order to create new work and class structures for the festival over the following four days. Some collaborators include Brandin Steffensen, Jeremy Finch, Abigail Levine, Stephanie Fungsang, members of the Yaa Samar Dance Company, and more. Plus we'll be teaming up with local teachers and performers to create a festival that really is in, around, and for the town of Wellfleet.Fleet Moves, the co-directors promise, will "set the town in motion with all-day programming that includes daily classes, indoor and outdoor performances, a visual art exhibition, film screenings, and a closing night dance party."
