Times Square Arts and Danspace Project Present The History of Dance at The Crossroads of The World

Times Square Arts and Danspace Project Present The History of Dance at The Crossroads of The World

Times Square Arts, in partnership with Danspace Project present three site-specific commissions by Luciana Achugar, Laurie Berg, and Full Circle Souljahs (Ana “Rokafella” Garcia & Gabriel “Kwikstep” Dionisio) on Thursday, September 20 – Sunday, September 23 from 6:00 – 10:00 pm in Times Square at Duffy Square (between 46th and 47th Streets).

Danspace has 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. The artists will explore perception, amplification, and activism within the cacophonous landscape of Times Square.

In scape, Laurie 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.

In New Mass Dance, luciana 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.

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 audiences can experience all three works on one evening or over the course of the weekend.
