We will go ahead and perform today even though the forecast is for rain. We certainly need the rain, the plants will welcome it. This is part of the branch dance practice: we perform with the elements-- cancellations only in EXTREME weather. In about five years of performing the branch dances outdoors we have cancelled none! We are grateful to Wave Hill for supporting the work. We hope you will too! Take a walk on the wild side!
There is an element of survival that comes to play under challenging conditions, and it can be quite thrilling to confront it. I imagine it can be the same for the audience. My best advice is to be prepared. Bring an umbrella, wear a rain jacket or poncho and waterproof shoes. Bring a change of clothes. There are nice bathrooms at Wave Hill you can use to change into dry clothing after the performance.
These are all precautionary measures. With the weather you never know, it may stop raining!
AND Wave Hill is extraordinarily beautiful these days. We will will be performing by the ponds and the giant copper beech in the northeast end of the grounds. The wonderful Harold S Smith will accompany us.
Hope to see you there!
