Danspace Project is thrilled to partner with Times Square Alliance to present three site-specific commissions by luciana achugar, Laurie Berg, and Full Circle Souljahs (Ana "Rokafella" Garcia & Gabriel "Kwikstep" Dionisio) in Times Square. Danspace Project's Judy Hussie-Taylor and Lydia Bell have invited these artists to consider Times Square's history as a home to Broadway musicals, vaudeville, dance halls, and vernacular dance forms, including modern dance, tap, and hip hop, that emerged throughout the 20th century.

Artists luciana achugar, Laurie Berg, and Full Circle Souljahs will explore strategies for perception, amplification, and activism within the cacophonous landscape of Times Square. In New Mass Dance, achugar creates a site-specific procession inspired by the New Dance Group, a 1930s modern dance collective that taught classes near Times Square promoting social change through movement. In scape, Berg overlays a landscape of information over live performance via 3-D glasses, exploring Times Square as not just a place of spectacle and traffic but of visual messaging. Full Circle Souljahs' Behind the Groove, Times Square Edition is an homage to street and club dance trends from the '70s to today, giving visibility to an underground dance community long associated with Times Square.
 
These three new works will be presented back-to-back so that audience goers can experience all three works on one evening or over the course of the weekend.
