Add to Calendar 31-05-2013 31-05-2013 15 Fridays at Noon: Christopher Williams Curates: Douglas Dunn and Jordan Isadore Douglas Dunn describes Comme si ils danse avec des autres as an evolving work, each showing of which is complete on its own, but also able to be added to or expanded in a later performance. For Fridays at Noon, he'll be showing a solo in silence, followed by three short sections of dance set to Baroque music by Scarlatti, Vitali and Bassano. Jordan Isadore shows one repertory work and one work-in-progress. Les Sara premiered in 2011 as a video installation, inspired by girls on the Lower East Side, Motown girl groups and 1950s beefcake photos. The work, in video or live form, involves layers, patterns, repetition and short bursts of musical humor. Seizing on a more recent bit of pop culture, Isadore is creating Spanish Harlem Shake, a mash-up of Trisha Brown's Spanish Dance, dance moves by Beyonce Knowles and the viral Harlem Shake videos. Look for serious pelvic activity, a touch of sass and a dose of campy fun. Christopher Williams himself shows two excerpts from his work-in-progress, Wolf-in-Skins, set to original music by Gregory Spears and inspired by mythic "hero's journey" stories found in Welsh folklore. Please note: Tickets are now required for all Fridays at Noon performances. You can pick up a ticket at the box office downstairs. Pay what you can or come for free -- but you do need a ticket either way. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=135535 92nd Street Y true DD/MM/YYYY
