Lafayette Park is a game that uses dance to transform space. Born out of the tragic passing of a New Jersey resident, this interactive project guides the player through a series of news reports and interviews with locals of the Jersey City neighborhood of Communipaw. Through dance, we help elevate the spirit of the park and the community surrounding it.
Diana Quinones Rivera’s experimental dance films Absorb, White Oaks and Waste Park have shown in the Performance Mix Festival of NYC, the On The Wall Dance Film Series in Berlin and the Queens Museum of Art respectively. One of her latest films It’s a Feeling: Dancing with Jeff Selby will be screening at the Dance On Camera Film Festival 2014. Diana obtained a B.A. in Film at University of Puerto Rico and a Post Graduate certificate in Filmmaking at London Film School. She’s a current student of the Integrated Media Arts MFA program at Hunter College, NYC.
