Small Steps: Dances of Resilience Screening @ YouTube Premiere
Sep 9 @ 7:00 pm
Small Steps: Dances of Resilience Screening @ YouTube Premiere

In the beginning, Small Steps on Climate Change was a dance and embodied movement performance intended to inspire Metro Boston to view climate change as an opportunity to create stronger, collaborative, healthier, and more vibrant communities in the face of climate change. Just six weeks before opening night, COVID-19 altered the path.

Small Steps: Dances of Resilience is a full-length documentary film about overcoming the struggle to create and perform during a global pandemic. The dancers tell their stories of climate, COVID, art, and hope, and, finally, they dance.

Join us for three film screenings on YouTube Live this September 9, 10, and 11. Each screening will be time-limited and all content will be removed between and after each screening, so see it while you can!

After the Friday, September 11 performance, we will hold a “Meet the Dancers” Q&A session on Zoom.

The production was developed by movement artist, screenwriter and Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) Artist-in-Residence Hortense Gerardo and MAPC Senior Environmental Planner Darci Schofield to integrate the arts into climate change planning.

Directed by Hortense Gerardo and produced by Darci Schofield and MAPC.

Featuring original choreography and performances by:

  • Laura Sanchez Garcia, award-winning flamenco dancer, choreographer, and educator
  • Elizabeth Walker, former Los Angeles Ballet soloist
  • Simon Chernow, KRUMP and fusion hip-hop dancer and core leader of Boston’s Climate Strike

Webinar: Wastewater Testing for COVID-19 @ Zoom
Dec 3 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Cities and towns are deploying a number of strategies to identify the spread of COVID-19 in their communities. One emerging method: testing sewage from households and buildings for the presence of the virus.

Knowing that COVID-19 is present in wastewater can be an important indicator of where its spread may be accelerating. In places where wastewater testing has been deployed, changes in the virus’ wastewater concentration have been observed several days before changes in reported new cases.

At this webinar, you will hear from experts on the science of wastewater testing for disease surveillance, as well as public health leaders who have deployed wastewater testing in their communities.
