Can you believe it’s the last week of Celebrate Brooklyn’s free shows in the park!? It’s the first sign that summer is coming to a close. Don’t fret though, not only do we still have free outdoor films all around Brooklyn, but the concerts and performances at the Prospect Park Bandshell for this last week of Celebrate Brooklyn are going to be good! See more below!
Thursday– Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s exceptional second company returns to the Bandshell on the 45th anniversary of its inception with a program of recent work that showcases these young artists’ breathtaking skill and athleticism. Works will include Road to One (choreographed by Darrell Grand Moultrie), an excerpt from Tracks (Uri Sands), Breaking Point (Renee I. McDonald), and the mischievous and profoundly joyful Where There Are Tongues (Bradley Shelver), which features music by the Occitan vocal and percussion group Lo Còr De La Plana.
Friday– Marvin Gaye Tribute What’s Going On featuring Felicia Collins, Toshi Reagon, Siedah Garrett, Kecia Lewis, and others.
Saturday– Bomba Estéreo / Delsonido -Simón Mejía and Li Saumet, the Bogotá based electro cumbia superstars that make up Bomba Estéreo, close our 41st season with a bang, along with fiery local Colombian expat outfit Delsonido.
