Saturdays at Watermill

At The Watermill Center

    The Watermill Center will open its doors Saturday afternoon from 2 to 6 for a variety of activities and programs. Blakeley White-McGuire, a principal dancer with the Martha Graham Dance Company, will lead a free movement workshop for all ages, titled “Cultivating Physical Presence,” at 2. Participants will explore performance through basic movements such as walking, standing, running, and skipping. Comfortable clothing and shoes have been recommended.

    At 3, Laura Rozenberg, a local artist originally from Argentina, will offer a workshop for ages 7 and up in creating a recycled material garden from plastic bottles. Participants should bring recyclable plastic bottles; other materials will be provided.

    Fanni Futterknecht and Marianne Vlaschits will present “Metamorphic,” a performance installation set in the center’s gardens, at 4. Prior to the work-in-progress performance, in which the artists will present a “sculptural painting,” films by Ms. Futterknecht and Ms. Vlaschits will be screened. A reception and Q&A will follow the presentation of “Metamorphic.”

    A walking tour of the building, gardens, and grounds will also be offered at 3. All programs are free, but reservations are required and may be secured at watermillcenter.org.
