Global Water Dances is an international platform to raise awareness of water issues and advocate for access to clean water worldwide. The Gowanus Canal was given Superfund status by the US government because it is one of the most polluted waterways in the United States. Artichoke Dance Company is committed to upcycling materials for sets and costumes. Plastic bags clog waterways and endanger marine life.
