Summer on the Hudson’s “Breathing with Strangers” will be live-streamed on Friday, August 14 from 6:30 to 7:30pm. This dance performance by Kinesis Project will take place Riverside Park South.
“The dance company’s large-scale outdoor dance performance is a ragged, sweeping and surprising love-song to New York City. Two dancers meet, twist, and wind through pathways while viewers hear stories of NY interactions and can share their own on writekind.org,” says the NYC Parks Department.
Says Kinesis Project, “Breathing with Strangers is inspired by New York City and the transit we use to move to and fro within it. I love the subway system, and I am in awe, and fascinated by the moments of collective sleepy quiet on a Monday morning, the intense proximity we share as New Yorkers, and how good we (generally) are at keeping space, and peace between us. ”
Breathing with Strangers has been developed over the last year with support of Summer on the Hudson, LMCC/UMEZ and CUNY Dance Initiative.Get the UWS newsletter:
