Love Against the Rocks @ The ChEck Us OuT Dance Festival Saturday, July 13th 2013 5:00 PM - Summit Rock, Central Park, NYC FREE, includes free dessert 81st & Central Park West entrance Love Against the Rocks is MOPDC's latest choreography, based on the Jamaican folktale Lovers Leap, and inspired by the beauteous location of Summit Rock. As legend has it, either two enslaved Africans or an enslaved African and a plantation owners daughter fell in love. Rather than being forced to separate and live without each other, they fled the plantation and were chased to the edge of a 1,700 foot cliff above the Caribbean Sea. They jumped. MOPDC uses traditional Jamaican folk dances and music woven with a Contemporary dance flare to tell this tragic tale. Directions: entrance on 81st and Central Park West Trains: B or C trains to 81st
