ISLAND MOVING COMPANY’S OPEN FOR DANCING Call for Participants!


Island Moving Company presents the seventh Open for Dancing Festival September 20-24, 2017. Choreographers this year are Mary Scott, of Seattle; Thom Dancy of St. Louis, MO and Teresa Fellion from New York. They will be working with other artists and members of the community to create work for our most imaginative and joyous festival.

In a process that participants have called life-changing, ordinary people collaborate with accomplished choreographers and artists to make memorable performances. They create a community with their fellow company members and the artists. In the long days of developing the piece, they discover physical reserves within themselves and intimate affinities within the landscape they work. Audience members at the free performances commonly see familiar landscapes in a new way. O4D has happened on beaches,

wharves, in parks, on private lawns, and in historic venues.

Festival Locations:

  • Ballard Park Quarry Meadow
  • Greenvale Vineyards Manor House
  • Fort Adams Redoubt
