10 AM – 8 PM volunteering at BkSD (in two hour slots)

Volunteer Day, Dinner, and Performance


Contributions by: Jumatatu Poe & Mariana Valencia

Nourishing community and providing a web of support for artistic research are what propel this event, which brings together three organizations: Movement Research (MR), School for Contemporary Dance and Thought (SCDT), and Brooklyn Studios for Dance (BkSD).

MR is partnering with SCDT in Northampton, MA to provide two artists with three days of rest, retreat, and residency outside of the city. Jumatatu Poe and Mariana Valencia will take this time for whatever they would like to work on. They will show something of what they are making at BkSD. During the day, BkSD will host various work projects in and around the venue, such as gardening, painting and food preparations for a dinner that will be served during the show.
Those who volunteer will get to eat and see the show for free. To sign up or inquire about volunteering, contact [email protected] See further information about volunteering below.
