Dusk Dances is an outdoor dance festival that brings high quality contemporary and traditional dance to public parks.

As dusk descends, a theatrical host leads the audience to eclectic dance pieces that unfold in different areas of the park. Choreographers from various backgrounds are invited to perform a ten-minute piece inspired by the park’s natural environment. Audiences are invited on a pay-what-you-can basis to an innovative site-specific festival, which is not only an artistic event but a social and cultural one as well. 2016 will be Dusk Dances’ 22nd season.
