Site Location: County Waterfront Park: North Fountain Reflecting Pool
Trolley Dances, an event that brings dance along San Diego's trolley and bus lines, celebrates its 17th anniversary with a visit to Balboa Park.
In its nearly two decades, choreographers have put on site-specific shows in places like supermarkets, libraries, business parks and playgrounds in Logan Heights, downtown San Diego and Chula Vista. But never in Balboa Park.
In honor of Balboa Park's Centennial celebrations, Trolley Dances makes its first trek to the landmark park, with choreographers drawing inspiration from the park's architecture and atmosphere.
“The fountains caught my eye for their beauty and elegance against the San Diego skyline. I am also drawn to the interactivity they invite from the public. I have chosen to create this work with the ambient sounds of the water and environment to further allow the audience to experience the site in its natural state."
