Colleen Thomas Dance presents RESTLESS (FREE)
Colleen Thomas Dance
Visual artist Samantha Holmes, known for her large-scale metal and stone works and public art projects (including Hell Gate Cairns, an installation in NYC’s Randall’s Island and Riverside Park) and dancer-choreographer Colleen Thomas, whose recent work Light and Desire was praised for delivering “an implicit answer for how to get around the forces that silence women” by The New York Times, join forces for a free public event featuring RESTLESS, a dance performance on and around the newly-relocated sculpture MUNDILLO (LITTLE WORLD) in a celebration of women and their work.
The event, free and open to the public, will take place on Sunday, October 24 @ 1-3pm (with performances every 30 minutes starting at 1pm) at the northeast corner of West 97th Street and Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan, where Holmes’ monumental steel sculpture was recently installed.
Performances at 1:00, 1:30, 2, and 2:30pm. Performed by dancers Colleen Thomas, Nadia Halim, Morgen Littlejohn, Sadi Mosko, and Kennedy Thomas, with cellist Lily Gelfand.
The project is co-sponsored by the Columbus Amsterdam BID and NYC DOT as part of the city's Open Boulevards initiative to reactivate the city's public spaces.
