History Happy Hour: Steps in Time--Dance as Cultural Performance 09/28/23 at 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm

History Happy Hour: Steps in Time--Dance as Cultural Performance

September History Happy Hour at Pejepscot History Center

Steps in Time: Dance as Cultural Performance with June Vail

September 28 at 5:30pm

at Pejepscot History Center, 159 Park Row, Brunswick, Maine

Dancing is a fundamentally human activity: a badge of identity, a mode of communication, a force in social life. Everyone dances: How we move and dance are physical, emotional, spiritual, aesthetic, and social behaviors. So, are all dances “ethnic?” How does a tango, a pas de deux, a Super Bowl half-time show, or an Abenaki line dance embody and communicate messages for participants and viewers?  What can the comparative study of dance tell us about contemporary American — as well as more unfamiliar — cultures? June Vail, founder of Bowdoin’s dance program and Professor of Dance Emerita, discusses dance as cultural performance.

Tickets: $8 PHC Members; $12 General Admission

or call (207) 729.6606

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Admission includes light snacks and a beverage.


MCHPP Book Discussion Group 09/28/23 at 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm

MCHPP Book Discussion Group

As part of Harvest Week 2023, MCHPP is excited to offer a free 3-part community discussion series in partnership with the Maine Humanities Council. The discissions will be guided by our facilitator, Lacey Sparks, and grounded in selected texts: Saturday at the Food Pantry by Diane O’Neill and The Seed Keeper by Diane Wilson. Our hope is for participants to examine and discuss the deep interconnections between community, our food system and food security. Participation is free and the selected texts are provided at no cost.

The group will convene in-person for three consecutive Thursdays: 9/28, 10/5, and 10/12 from 5:30pm-7:00pm. Space is limited and we ask that participants are able to commit to attending all three discussions. Advanced registration required!

We look forward to being in community with you! Please reach out to Rena at with any questions.
