This video was created for the 135+ private hotel rooms of the Gershwin Hotel. During the live performances of DARK HORSE/BLACK FOREST in the Gershwin's lobby restroom presented by P.S. 122 from June 5-28, 2009, hotel guests could witness the performance in the privacy of their own rooms. The video was presented in split screen, on the left: the performance, and on the right: a scene in one of the Gershwin's rooms.
Dark Horse/Black Forest at the Gershwin Hotel won a NY Dance & Performance "Bessie" Award in 2009.
