Dance Films and Art Fair on City Hall Plaza June 5 & 12

Dance Mile Flyer

Malden City Hall Plaza, 215 Pleasant Street will be transformed into an outdoor movie theatre on Saturday evenings, June 5th and 12th, when Monkeyhouse presents the Malden Dance Mile, a series of free dance films on a large screen. (Rain dates are June 6 and June 13.) The dance films created during NACHMO (National Choreography Month) Boston feature the work of 27 local choreographers over the two evenings. Persons attending the free event should bring a chair or blanket to sit on to watch the performance. An art fair will be held on the plaza starting at 5PM.   The films will start at 8 PM both evenings.

NACHMO Boston is a program where choreographers create brand new dance pieces during January every year and perform them at the end of the month. Since there were no live performances this past year, the choreographers created dance films instead. This is the live presentation of those films by choreographers with a range of styles, ages, and ethnic backgrounds. Choreographers include Lacey Sasso, Brett Michael Bell, Sarah Craver, Amy Foley & OnStage Dance Company , Lila Ruth Klaus, Jessica Roseman, Jennifer Binversie, Zara Williams-Nicholas, Meena Chen, Marissa Chura, Brenna Banister, Alexandria Nunweiler & Alive Dance Collective, Ruth Benson Levin, Lynn Modell, Natalie Schiera, Elizabeth Powers, Nicole Harris, Anne Goldberg-Baldwin, Cassandre Charles, karen Krolak, Christopher Croucher, Collective Moments, Janice Zhai, Sarah Feinberg, Rachel Roccoberton, Madison Florence, and Azeb Freitas

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Malden Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass. Cultural Council, a state agency and the Mass. Cultural Council’s Project and Festivals grants.

The June 5th performance will be the prelude to a series of Summer Festivals in Malden Center throughout the months of June, July and August. More information is available here about the about the dance films  and about the Summer Festivals

Free parking for the dance films and the Summer Festivals is available at the CBD Garage, 170 Centre St. and the Jackson Street Garage, 7 Jackson St. 

Who is Monkeyhouse? Monkeyhouse, a Malden based award winning nonprofit that connects communities through choreography, has collaborated with towns throughout New England to encourage residents of all ages to move with meaning. Founded in 2000 by Karen Krolak and Nicole Harris, it began with a promise to build a laboratory where choreographers could create, experiment and present new work. They have mentored, nurtured and supported local, national, and international choreographers ranging from students first experimenting to established favorites. They have hosted hundreds of conversations about different creative processes and helped foster long-term relationships with presenters, audience members and other choreographers. They look for events that bring communities together in ways that foster greater understanding between participants and lasting relationships. Please visit: www.monkeyhouselovesme.com/
