Global Water Dances Nashville

Global Water Dances Nashville

Global Water Dances is a world event first launched in June 2011. In 2013 the second global performance included Nashville Tennessee as well. My wife, Mary Stone was the Choreographer, Producer and a dancer at the event.   I helped with the logistics and did the videography.

On a single day, a series of dances centered on water issues were performed beginning in the Western Pacific Rim, then encircling the globe. The global Water Dances Initiative is about “Dancing for Safe, Clean Water & Sanitation”

The Global Water dances use dance and music to blend local water issues with the global struggle to ensure safe water for all human beings. Global Water Dances is a bold visionary artistic initiative focused on the critical need for safe drinking water.

Today, there are an estimated 5 million deaths per year globally from polluted water. By 2025, over half the world’s population will be facing water-related problems. Global Water Dances is a model of how to use participatory art-making to raise consciousness about environmental problems and how to bring people together to work on solving these problems. Participants and viewers of Global Water Dances learn about the critical role of humans in protecting water supplies.
