The Bellagio Experience:
To bring people’s attention to the power and importance of water, we have chosen to perform “Bellagio” in venues that are located close to bodies of water that are rich in the history of water-usage in New York City. Spring 2015 we will be presenting one block from English Kills, and in September, we will present near The Gowanus Canal. Both were once creeks that became part of the busiest industrial area in the USA, before evolving into what they are today. To help us talk about the importance of water, we have invited a few other very interesting folks to join us, to speak about local and global water.
