About the Event

Visit Pier 62 at Waterfront Park as we shine the spotlight on Portraits in Motion: a special program where local dance artists paint physical narratives that explore themes of identity, locality, resilience, beauty, and joy. Friends of Waterfront Park is joined by long-time collaborator, event curator and host, David Rue, to showcase the talents of Tariq Mitri, Olivia Anderson & Rose Amlin, Drama Tops featuring Shane Donahue & Elby Brosch and the Black Collectivity featuring Nia-Amina Minor, Akoiya Harris, and Marco Farroni.
