Robert F. Wagner Jr. Park in Battery Park City

Battery Dance, in association with Battery Park City Authority, announces the 37th Annual Battery Dance Festival with performances from August 12-17, 2018 from 7pm to 9pm against the breathtaking backdrop of the New York Harbor at Robert F.

In addition to the live performances, there will be a screening of the film Moving Stories held in the Robert F. Wagner Jr. Park on Saturday, August 11, 2018 at 8pm. Moving Stories, which recently premiered at the MoMa Doc Fortnight Festival, follows Battery Dance's dancers as they travel to India, Romania, Korea, and Iraq working with at-risk youth through the Dancing to Connect program. With just one week to teach the tools of choreography and collaboration to the youth in preparation for a final performance, the film captures the struggle, frustration, determination, and transformation of both students and teachers. Moving Stories is a film by Sundance Award-winning director Rob Fruchtman, writer-producer Cornelia Ravenal, filmmaker Mikael Södersten, and producer Wendy Sax.

This year's featured artists include the best of New York City as well as dancers from Botswana, Canada, Gabon, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Spain, Turkey and a collection of India's greatest Kathak dancers.

Battery Dance Presents
PULA!
Botswana on Broadway
Sponsored by the Botswana Tourism Organisation
August 22-23, 2018
The PlayStation Theater


Battery Dance presents a dance theatre musical, PULA! Botswana on Broadway, sponsored by the Botswana Tourism Organisation, on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at 3pm and 8pm and Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 8pm at The PlayStation Theater, 1515 Broadway, NYC.
 
Pula, or rain, is highly cherished in Botswana, a semi-arid country in Africa. This fictional play - anchored on the practical and mystical relationship that Batswana have with rain - traces how rain brings humans, plants and animals under one Botswana sky.
 

Because of this close relationship with rain, Batswana have always had endless names for rain depending on whether the rain is creating or destroying, whether it is before or after the planting of crops. And so, when drought hits one tiny village in Botswana, the chief assembles his villagers to find a solution. One young woman, Mmapula, is identified as the Rainmaker who must set forth in adventurous search of a specific type of life-giving rain for her people.
 
This spell-binding musical from Botswana chronicles a rainmaker's quest to regain her powers. Her physical and spiritual rite of passage takes her to the inland delta and savannas of their homeland whereupon she consults tribespeople, and animal and plant communities for wisdom. In this community, where life is lived in communion with all living beings, the Rainmaker - through traditional song and dance - unites all creation toward the goal of bringing rain to her desert land. The result is an exhilarating celebration of all life, with a powerful heart-warming twist.
 

Tickets start at $40 and are available at www.botswanaonbroadway.com.

The PlayStation Theater | 1515 Broadway, NYC.
