Last Minute Weekend Suggestions: Brooklyn Heights and Nearby

Brooklyn Bridge Park has plenty on tap for adults and kids this weekend. On Saturday, July 25, staring at 7:00 p.m. on Pier 1’s Harbor View Lawn, Gibney Dance Company will present a performance by Heidi Latsky Dance (photo):

On the eve of the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Heidi Latsky Dance presents SOMEWHERE, a spirited suite of solos and duets that embrace difference and the isolation of being human with fierceness and frankness. Join us after the show for a discussion with the artists.

On Sunday, July 26, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Pier Kids will present PuppetMobile’s Tales of Brier Rabbit (not “Brer”; apologies to Joel Chandler Harris). There are more details here.

Another event for kids is on Sunday from noon to 4:00 p.m., starting at the “other” Granite Prospect; the smaller one on the uplands of Pier 3. Participants will tour Jeppe Hein’s “Please Touch the Art” and a teaching artist from the Children’s Museum of the Arts will lead them in art-making activities inspired by the exhibit. More information here.

All of the above events are free. We presume Smorgasburg will be back on the Pier 5 uplands on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; we know that you may take a free guided park tour by going to the Pier 1 entrance near the foot of Old Fulton Street at 11:00 a.m. Sunday. For other Park activities this weekend, see their calendar.

Bargemusic’s all piano concert schedule this weekend begins at 8:00 on Friday evening, July 24, with works by Chopin, Anders Eliasson, and Schumann played by Beth Levin. On Saturday evening at 8:00 Alexander Peskanov will play works by Chopin. On Sunday afternoon at 4:00 Steven Beck will present the second of his two concerts playing Beethoven’s complete variations and bagatelles. There’s more information and buy tickets here. Saturday afternoon at 4:00 there will be a free, family oriented “Music in Motion” concert, co-sponsored by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy. Doors open at 3:45; first come, first seated.

If you know of any other events in or near Brooklyn Heights this weekend that should be mentioned, please let us know in a comment.
