Follow the Water Walks developed models for intergenerational, community-engaged walks through choreographic, scientific, and cultural research. The walks and related activities offered an embodied experience of natural and man-made water systems, with attention to storm water routes from the East Tremont neighborhood to the Bronx River. The residency, a partnership with the Bronx River Alliance, activated the community’s cultural and environmental knowledge through movement explorations and GIS mapping strategies.
