ABOUT THE PROJECT
The LES Citizens Parade is an activist processional and series of performances connecting community members of NYC’s Lower East Side. Created by choreographer Naomi Goldberg Haas (Artistic Director of Dances For A Variable Population), and visual artist Laura Nova, and performed by neighborhood senior citizens and legendary senior dancers, the work will create a celebratory, visual journey that honors the experience of long-term residents and marks the opening of a new eco-park at Pier 35.
