Forty Steps will perform Creatures (2014), an otherworldly tribute that is full of animal magnetism. The work wowed the sold-out audience at the Spring Dance Concert at Nahant Town Hall; an imaginative transformation solidly based in disciplined technique and the dancers’ energetic commitment. Artistic Director and choreographer Sallee Slagle hopes the work will spark an affinity for nature among the audience as well. “We all have a connection to nature,” she said, “but in our busy lives, we rarely have time to observe and engage.” In addition, the company will perform Accord, a crowd-pleasing work created by Slagle in 1992 and returned to the repertory for the 20th Anniversary season last year.

Sarah Slifer Swift is presenting two works, Insenser (2014, premiere) and Invisible Stories (2013). Insenser, named after an NSA surveillance system, is a look at the human response to watching, being watched, and becoming data. Power, trust, control and vulnerability take the stage in a work that is at once alluring and disturbing. Invisible Stories, a collaboration between Swift and Vermont-based writer and choreographer Kate Tarlow Morgan, is a performance piece based on the idea that the book, open or closed, occupies the inner and outer landscapes in which we live. The book is a place, a body of matter and manifestation, and it is also endangered. As part of the Invisible Stories performance, an installation for one of the Windhover buildings will be on display at the start of each evening.

For decades, Windhover Center for the Performing Arts has hosted a magical scene featuring the finest modern dancers in Massachusetts, New York City, and beyond. Don’t miss this chance to see Forty Steps Dance and Sarah Slifer Swift in concert! Tickets can be purchased at, or at Toad Hall Bookstore, Rockport; The Bookstore, Gloucester; or by sending a check to Windhover,
P.O. Box 2249, Rockport, MA,01966.  


Hi Joey and Ray,
   Many people love the American flags on Stacy Boulevard. As you may have heard Ringo Tarr has been purchasing along with donations the flags over the years and this year they came up short.
    Because I love the flag display I decided along with  help from Adam Curcuru and Lucia at the Veterans office on Emerson Ave. we have made it possible for people to purchase and donate a flag. The purchase of a flag can also be made at my shop on Essex Ave. These flags are 100% Made in USA.
  The donated flags are then held for Ringo with a card telling him who purchased it. He picks up the flags as needed to replace any worn flags.
I have attached a photo of the display that is at the Veterans office.
Thank you for your help in getting the word out.
Hope you have a wonderful July 4th. Holiday,
With sincere thank,

Pauline Bresnahan
