Dancing High Above the High Line; Seeking Subway Ideas

New, 1 comment

MEPA?95 Horatio Street is perhaps best known as the building that took its freight train bas relief plan to the LPC. Now it's getting artsy again with "Roof Piece," a rooftop dance performance "composed of ten dancers who will be situated on different rooftops, each within sight of the next dancer in the line. The first dancer will begin the performance by improvising movement signals that will be transmitted to the next dancer on the nearest roof." The dance can be seen from the High Line tonight and tomorrow at 7 p.m. and on Saturday at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.. [CurbedWire Inbox]

UNDERGROUND?A new program called SubSeries has big ideas for sprucing up twelve subway stations?including Grand Central, Columbus Circle, and 125th Street station?by soliciting subway riders' feedback and asking 20 architects, designers, and artists for "optimistic strategies" for improving subway stations. We find that swiping a MetroCard saps us of any optimism, but maybe the SubSeries folks will do a better job of following the advice on the back. [CurbedWire Inbox]
