About The Event
The SURGE performance is a participatory dance work by BDT of approximately 45 minutes in length. Audience members mingle with performers and a scientist to witness dance and engage in dialogue about the climate crisis, current sea level rise science, and coastal impacts to come. The work was initially funded by the Boston Dancemakers Residency award in 2020, but the creation was cut short by COVID-19 cancellations. The Boston Foundation has provided support to BDT to launch the pilot SURGE Fellowship in East Boston, in partnership with The Trustees of Reservations.
