New site-specific piece to be performed in downtown NYC

Today marks the start of the next performance series in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Sitelines’s 2009 Festival. Until July 17, New Yorkers can catch choreographers Jonah Bokaer (formerly of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company) and Judith Sanchez Ruiz (Trisha Brown Dance Company) at One Chase Manhattan Plaza as they perform their site-specific work, Untitled Corner, in collaboration with visual artist Daniel Arsham. The piece, which was recently performed in Spain, examines memory loss, pattern recognition, and perceptual faculties as they apply to the human body in public space. Arsham has created an eight-foot, 3-dimensional cube made from pieces of foam for the set, allowing the dancers to explore their movements in different locations through various entry and exit points.
