Marinella Senatore and The School of Narrative Dance Performance

Saturday, November 16
12:30pm - 3:30pm


We cordially invite you to join us on Saturday, November 16 for an exciting performance, hosted by Magazzino and directed by internationally renowned artist Marinella Senatore, taking place in the heart of Cold Spring. Based on Marinella’s unique vision, the performance will feature the cultural and creative community of Philipstown taking place in the form of a procession down Main Street.

We are seeking volunteers for their help in engaging the public throughout the performance. Volunteers will facilitate the flow of the procession, guiding the performers and audience along Main Street.

The procession begins at 12:30 pm and will proceed down Main Street (starting from Route 9D and ending at the Bandstand at the intersection of Main Street and West Street). Volunteers are needed from 11:30 am until the end of the performance around 3:30 pm. Please note the performance is voluntary, and participants will be filmed and photographed for social media and further distribution.

An information session will be held on Thursday, November 14 from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm. We are happy to provide a formal letter of participation to any volunteers if needed. Each volunteer will receive a complimentary Magazzino hat and pin.

Interested volunteers should contact:
Gabriella Perez | | +1 (845) 666-7204
Victoria Jones | | +1 (845) 666-7203
