The Rhode Island Historical Society is hosting this event with special guest speaker, Mary Lancaster.

Providence organizer Nate Storring, Brown University Assistant Professor of Urban Studies and American Studies Samuel Zipp, along with others, will discuss Jane’s Walk, a nationwide celebration of the ideas and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs. Jane’s walk celebrates people getting to know their own neighborhoods through free walking tours lead by locals.
Viktor Plotnikov’s choreography is both artistic and scientific, designed to break the boundaries of human emotion and anatomy. In a single evening, Boundless Plotnikov captures the range of Plotnikov’s creativity. In addition to an encore of last season’s hit premiere, ORCHIS, the program features the RI premiere of SURRENDER, as well as a brand new work.
