For the past eight years, MM2 Modern Dance has found a home at the Grounds for Sculpture, where it has been able to dance and offer a variety of programs to the public in one of the most inspirational of settings.
Continuing with our collaboration for 2011, MM2 will be creating a series of improvisational dances as part of the Earth Day Celebration at Grounds for Sculpture on April 23, 2011 starting at 2:00pm. Live music for this event will be provided by Dan Ison, who has composed for and collaborated with MM2 for the past two seasons. Dance pieces will literally be created “on the spot”, pulling inspiration from the sculptures and beautiful surroundings.
The event is Free to the public with admissions to the grounds. Event is weather permitting.
Grounds For Sculpture, located in Hamilton, New Jersey (midway between Philadelphia and New York), is a whimsical thirty-five acre sculpture garden and arboretum on the former site of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds. Founded by Seward Johnson to promote an understanding of and appreciation for contemporary sculpture, the park has been enchanting visitors since 1992. Grounds For Sculpture features more than 250 contemporary sculptures, and two 10,000 square foot museum galleries with rotating exhibits. In addition, the park offers workshops for children and adults, concerts, performances, fairs, shopping and fine dining at the Zagat’s-rated Rat’s Restaurant, which was awarded Philadelphia Magazine’s Best of Philly 2009: Most Romantic Restaurant.
