Sensewalk #1: EVERYTHING IS NEW
Dance artist Miguel Gutierrez has created four unique walks for Elastic City that awaken, explore and illuminate the senses.
For the first of the four Sensewalks, participants will gather in Prospect Park to investigate the five basic senses – hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting and touching–teasing their particular properties apart through anatomical and experiential exercises and then watching how they interact, compete, rise and fall to construct a magical and wondrous reality. Miguel will then lead these new bodies on a trip through the Prospect Park Greenmarket. Be ready to roll in the grass. All abilities welcome.
This walk holds 16 people.
Miguel Gutierrez's "Sensewalk #1" has been selected as a favorite of the year by Jillian Steinhauer. "It may sound like a glorified version of summer camp, and maybe it was, but it also opened me up in a way that nothing else has since — I guess summer camp." Hyperallergic. 12/31/12
