  4. RECESS: Dance of Light
    Created and performed by Michael Helland
    Presented June 6 & 7, 8pm, in the NDA Performance Mix Festival at Abrons Arts Center

    RECESS: the Ritual Experience Concept Event Spa Show is a site-responsive installation and situation for performance, offering a restorative and contemplative time away from the outside world. This special edition of the Dance of Light ceremonial hour is centered upon a minimalist serpentine dance, a live sculpture where mind and body meet in a feat of mutual concentration, seeking to help sharpen and re-enchant our centers of perception.
