What you need to know before heading to “The C Project” at WaterFire

Waterfire CC Banner-01We are just days away from unveiling our wide-ranging program – The C Project! Here are some details you might want to know before heading to the show at WaterFire this weekend:

  • The July 26 event (C is for Cure: A WaterFire Lighting for RI Defeats Hep C) aims to bring awareness to Hepatitis C, a viral infection affecting 1 in 30 baby boomers. A staggering 70% of people with the virus don’t know they are infected.
  • FBP’s performance will begin around 8:15pm at the Waterplace Basin Stage (view on Google Maps).
  • Arrive early to get a good spot to sit. With the weather expected to be gorgeous, we anticipate a big turnout for this show.

  • There will be two pieces prior to the lighting of the braziers. Three pieces will follow the lighting. Download the full program here [PDF].
  • The program features a range of choreographic styles, from classical ballet (“Paquita Polonaise”) to contemporary ballet (“Eleanor Rigby”, “@ Last”, “Hey Jude”) to modern dance (“Helplessly Hoping”).
  • Two FBP Company Dancers – Alex Lantz and Elizabeth Mochizuki – will perform a piece titled “Eleanor Rigby” choreographed by another company member, Louisa Chapman. Read more about that piece here.
  • The other four pieces will be performed by students of the FBP Summer Dance Intensive 2014, a four week program drawing advanced ballet students from around the region.SDI-logo
