A Decidedly Downtown Take on Site-Specific Performance
Presented in association with the River To River® Festival, Sitelines 2010 will present six world premieres in a compelling line-up of site-specific contemporary dance and performance, free of charge to audiences throughout Lower Manhattan.
From emerging choreographer Laura Peterson and interdisciplinary artist duo LoVid, to Bessie award-winning Christopher Williams and internationally renowned Yoshiko Chuma & The School of Hard Knocks, Sitelines 2010 offers a “decidedly downtown” take on site-specific performance with a selection of sites as eclectic as the artist line-up.
Celebrating its 7th season, Sitelines 2010 includes performances throughout downtown from The Elevated Acre at 55 Water Street to the intimate courtyard at historic John Street United Methodist Church. Additional highlights of the 2010 season include performances at the exciting locations of Governors Island and LMCC’s LentSpace, a free, outdoor, contemporary art space located at Canal and Varick Street in Hudson Square.
Sitelines 2010 is generously supported by Ameriprise Financial, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, New York City Department Cultural Affairs, and New York State Council on the Arts.
