On Wednesday, Sept. 9, from 7:30 – 8:45 p.m. Holly Rothschild replays her site-specific dance work Seaclipse, which was commissioned especially for Tongva Park last year and premiered to rapt audiences. The work will traverse five different areas of the park, highlighting its varied settings and one-of-a-kind architectural features. Spectators will follow the dancers into each of the park’s distinctive terrains, exploring the landscape’s textures, intimate spaces and urban vistas. Choreographed by Holly Rothschild, the piece features dancers Genevieve Carson, Danny Dolan, Lavinia Findikoglu, Princess Mecca and Andrea Sobke.
These events are free and open to the public. Tongva Park is centrally located in Santa Monica’s Civic Center at 1615 Ocean Ave and is easily accessible by foot, bike, or bus. Ample bike parking is located near each park entrance (Ocean Avenue, Main Street, and Olympic Boulevard). Several Metro and Big Blue Bus lines have stops adjacent to the park. Limited metered street parking is available.
