NYS Parks, Recreation, Historic Preservation Germantown, N.Y. – On Saturday, August 4 at 3:00 p.m. Clermont State Historic Site will present “Luminarium Dance Company in Concert: Exploring Female Identity at Clermont”. Company founders Merli V. Guerra and Kimberleigh A. Holman have created two new pieces of dance exclusively for Clermont, exploring the lives of women who called Clermont home and the Livingstons’ relationship to the landscape.

Based in Boston, Luminarium is an award-winning contemporary dance company now in its eighth season that is regularly hailed for its unique combination of dance, light, and enlightenment. Enjoy a performance of elastic buoyancy, athletic partnering, and whimsical time travel, as Luminarium makes its Clermont debut. This program is made possible thanks to an action grant from Humanities New York. General Admission; bring a blanket or chair. Performance will take place rain or shine. Tickets are $10, children 12 and under are free.
