Sensewalk #3: SPACE IS THE PLACE
Dance artist Miguel Gutierrez has created four unique walks for Elastic City that awaken, explore and illuminate the senses.
In the third Sensewalk, we'll go in to go out--way out. Participants will enter the hallowed halls of the New York Public Library to travel into the senses of space and time. Using the simplest of actions – walking, standing, sitting, lying down – the group will find out how our bodies register the poetics of the environment and observe how a seemingly stable environment becomes an arena for change and possibility.
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

The walk will meet on the bottom of the front steps of the New York Public Library (the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building) on Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street in Manhattan.
