Global Water Dance (May 2, 1:30pm-2:30pm)
Poche Beach, 2771 N El Camino Real, San Clemente, CA 92672
Our dance draws attention to the global plastic waste crisis and its effects upon our oceans, mammals, birds and sea life in an interdependent ecosystem. On Poche beach where the dance takes place in San Clemente, California, we see waste problems occurring at the surface of the ocean when waste washes up to shore daily, and local people work diligently to remove the plastics, only to see it washing up again to litter the shoreline. Mismanaged waste remains on land, triggering public health crises among vulnerable communities. As we think beyond the beach we recognize and call for the urgent need for action to reduce plastic waste and find sustainable possibilities to finally end plastic pollution and address mismanagement of plastic waste.
We are creating a film of our dance to be included in the Global Water Dances 2021 online festival, and we wish to use this film on an ongoing basis to help raise funds for a local environmental group who supports our goals. Global Water Dances is a movement that connects and supports a global community of choreographers and dancers to inspire action and international collaboration for water issues through the universal language of dance.
