Dancers Responding to AIDS is taking their annual Fire Island Dance Festival online this summer. The lineup includes world premieres and past festival performances, including PNB dancers Christopher D’Ariano and Lucien Postlewaite in Continuum, choreographed by acclaimed dancer and choreographer, Garrett Smith.

You can watch the entire performance streaming this Friday, July 17, 2020 at 4PM Pacific Time (7PM Eastern Time) at the Virtual Fire Island Dance Festival, free with advance registration. Sign up to watch HERE. And if you can’t watch the festival live, consider donating to Dancers Responding to AIDS to support their work. Donations made before Monday, July 20, 2020 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000.

To get ready for Friday’s stream, Christopher helped us compile photos and videos of Continuum and took over our Instagram stories on Thursday, July 16 (don’t worry, we saved Christopher’s take over in our Highlights!).
