Angels and Accordions

Today was our sixth annual performance of this wonderful site specific performance. Since 2004, Martha Bowers, director of Dance Theatre Etc., has choreographed a dance and music event across Green-Wood’s hills as part of openhousenewyork (a free annual event throughout New York City featuring architecture). Martha does wonders every year, recruiting a cast, tweaking the performances, and getting the whole thing ready. It’s is truly a different event: dancers  across the grounds, accordions playing, singers in trees or next to gravestones. A chance to enjoy the cemetery in a very different way. But words don’t do this performance justice. Hopefully, these photographs give you a better idea of how special this event is.
