Contemporary dance is usually experienced in large theaters. But is it possible to bring this experience out into public life? What if dance could live everywhere without boundaries?
Hsiao-Ting Hsieh and Hsiao-Wei Hsieh will be breaking with conventions and infiltrating the public space to draw inspiration from it. They relish in the diversity of Queens, and its inherent beauty, to develop choreography that reflect the movement present in our everyday lives. Commuters, merchants, students, an old man smoking, a quarreling couple, children playing, all of them create movement even if they are never aware of it. By means of metaphor and allegory they will transform the Flushing Library square into a stage, with street lamps for lights and the skyline as their backdrop.
