Boston Dance Theater launches SURGE Fellowship in East Boston, receives support from The Boston Foundation Live Arts Boston Grant.

This grant funds a paid creative residency for neighbors and stakeholders of East Boston to reflect on the impacts of climate change at the local level. Together, fellows will share stories, build on existing narratives of resilience to climate change, and envision a thriving future for the community through artistic presentation. Their work, in both movement and spoken word, will culminate in a performance in East Boston, alongside BDT’s performance of SURGE in 2022. Read the announcement article from WBUR.

Watch the SURGE East Boston Performance Premiere from July 30, 2022
