River Dance on Bikes
My roommate who is a modern dancer told me about this. Don't know if it will be good or bad, but I thought it was worth sharing.
MARY SEIDMAN AND DANCERS
FREEWHEELING BIKE PROJECT
June 11, 12, 18, 19; 12:30 to 2 PM
Ten professional biker/dancers will travel on the NYC bike path around the lower tip of Manhattan, connecting the East River to the Hudson River, stopping at seven destinations to perform an intricate ten-minute dance and to recreate music composed for the project by David Homan. The music and movement reflect both the synchronization and the dissonance that naturally occur throughout the city.
Bike paths from Canal Street on the East Side to West Side by the Boathouse. Performances at designated stops along the path. Bicyclists are free to follow performers on bike or meet them as an audience at one of the seven designated sites.
SITE 1 12:30 PM East Side Bike Path at Rutger's Slip and South Street
SITE 2 12:40 PM East Side Bike Path at Catherine Slip and South Street/Chinatown
