Secrets and Seawalls is a dance in two acts. Inspired by storms and disruption, Melissa
Riker and Kinesis Project dance theatre in collaboration with architect Lee H. Skolnick, FAIA, use methods of dance and architecture to explore vulnerability, power, and how each are revealed. The work premiered along the beach at Fort Tilden in Gateway National Park, The Rockaways in 2015. Melissa Riker and Lee Skolnick’s collaboration, Secrets and Seawalls has spanned the interest of both dance media and architecture.
