DANCE: “UNDERCURRENTS & EXCHANGE” PERFORMED AT WORLD FINANCIAL CENTER PRESENTS EVERY WEEKDAY FOR THE MONTH OF FEBURARYby Joelle Panisch
Those who work at the World Financial Center are in for a treat. All month long Zach Morris and Tom Pearson of Third Rail Projects will be presenting a new dance performance every workday during the lunch hour. The 5-10 minute performances will showcase the ordinary yet overlooked “undercurrents” of interpersonal “exchange”.
From the World Financial Center’s website:
“Each short dance will be a world unto itself but also accumulate meaning over the course of the month as the performances reveal the often veiled, but perpetually possible connections within the transitional spaces of the Winter Garden. Coupled with the performances are three art installations in displays located throughout the WFC that further explore hidden and improbable pairings.”
“Undercurrents & Exchange” also features choreography by Mariss Nielsen-Pincus and Tara O’Con with art installations by Zach Morris. It will be performed by Morris, Pearson, Nielsen-Pincus, and O’Con with Donna Ahmadi, Kris Bauman, Elizabeth Carena, Mayuna Shimizu, and other surprise guests.
