This week, an installation and performance titled "Ascension" will debut in Gansevoort Plaza from Thursday July 7th to Saturday July 9th.
Ascension is a choreographed dance performance centered around a twenty one foot rotating ladder. Elizabeth Streb choreographed the performance, which will be performed by 9 dancers from her STREB Extreme Action Company.
Gansevoort Plaza is located at 9th Avenue and Little West 12th Street, and performances will occur at 3pm and 5pm this Thursday through Saturday. Check out the Whitney Museum's website here for more details about the performance.
Yesterday, "Make Music NY" sponsored over 100 different pop-up musical performances throughout NYC, all day long. From pianos left of the street for anyone to play, to two quintets of instruments playing from the outdoor balconies of the NY Stock Exchange, the city was fully of music. In the Meatpacking District, conductor Kent Tritle led over 100 people along with soloists in a chorus in Gansevoort Plaza for an hour. Check out details from the NY Post here.
