INSITU Site-Specific Dance Festival

INSITU Site-Specific Dance Festival is a unique, free two-day dance festival that transforms the Western Queens waterfront into one big stage on July 8 & 9 from 12-7 PM daily. Taking place at four LIC waterfront parks, INSITU features a diverse program of unique dance works by distinguished and emerging New York City-based choreographers.

Performances range from solos, duos and quartets to group works with casts as large as 35 dancers.
