In The Air & Now: A Solar-Powered Dance Improvisation Performance
For one evening only, Solar One has invited choreographers Patricia Hoffbauer, Dan Safer and Marlies Yearby to perform on our outdoor stage. These three well-known choreographers will ask dancers to join them in exploring three concepts: self-involvement, co-dependence and perfect balance. Each artist will design their own 15-minute section and reveal to their dancers and to the audience, in the minutes before the performance, the structure they have envisioned. In this way, the immediacy of improvisation is conveyed. The audience understands the challenge and witnesses the ingenuity of the performers in initiating solutions. The sound for In the Air and Now is solar-powered, using energy from the panels on the Solar 1 roof.
Date: Thursday, July 10, 6pm. NOTE: Rain Date Friday, July 11, 6pm
Location: Solar One, The East River@23rd Street
