This Friday, July 16, Edinburgh Booking Dance Festival will be coming to Bryant Park to give the public a free preview of their upcoming Festival performance in Scotland!
Seven dynamic dance companies will take the Bryant Park stage with performances varying from a hilarious take on ballroom dancing from Ballroom Dancing for Tough Guys, to a mesmerizing performance by Michael Mao as he merges movements from east to west into an energetic modern piece. Teresa Fellion's work will even be accompanied by live music to foster a sense of intimacy as she performs a psychologically driven piece about human encounters with her company, BodyStories.
Following the Bryant Park event, the artists will travel to Scotland to participate in the annual Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Considered a "festival within a festival", the Booking Dance Festival was created to orchestrate a cultural exchange between performing artists and international communities.
Please join us at 6pm on The Lawn for a little culture to kick start your weekend!
