Arthur Aviles Typical Theatre is remounting Ritual Dance, a work he created in 2000. The piece consists of 15 dancers spread out through the Owen Dolan Park at the Westchester Square train station, performing simultaneous solos to the same beat, which they will create by hand claps and an occasional shout. Also presenting work that afternoon are Larry Keigwi, using his "Let's Make a Dance," process which features 30 performers - six Keigwin + Company members and 24 community members of all ages and abilities. And a work by James "Cricket" Colter, featuring five hip hop dancers who will adapt a broad vocabulary of hip hop styles to each park's terrain.
