Acadia Dance Festival featuring Nimbus Dance

Saturday, July 27th at 8 p.m.
Member Presale: 6/19 - 6/20
Public Sale: 6/21

Nimbus Dance returns to the Criterion Theatre for the debut of the Acadia Dance Festival, bringing world-class dance to Mount Desert Island, including performances, workshops, artist talks, and opportunities for MDI community members and visitors to engage closely with dance. Named among “Best Dance Performances of 2016” by The Huffington Post, Nimbus anchors the festival with an evening of superbly rendered, highly physical, and emotionally gripping dance.

The Festival’s 8pm evening program includes Nimbus Artistic Director Samuel Pott’s Hollow Square, a rumination on unseen bonds: dancer to dancer and dancer to audience created in collaboration with Grammy-nominated musician Tim Eriksen. Additionally, Dawn Marie Bazemore's vibrant new work, The After Party, pays tribute to jazz greats Nina Simone and Nancy Wilson. And Patch of Turf, Pott’s 2015 tour-de-force for four women who manipulate a 12’ x 8’ piece of artificial grass, underscores the tenuous and fraught relationship of humankind to earth.

Also, Don’t Miss: Prelude at 5pm.  This early evening performance features select performing groups from the MDI-area including Motion Collective (Coastal Maine), Dani Robbins (Bar Harbor), Movemetric Project (NYC/Maine), North Atlantic Dance Theater (Boston), Katie Swords Thurman (NYC) and youth performers from Camp Beech Cliff and Summer Festival of the Arts.
