arnet Henderson, NYC-based choreographer, performer, and journalist, is producing and performing in an unconventional, immersive dance experience utilizing Inwood Hill Park as the performance space. The new work, SOLACE, celebrates the beauty and relief found in our city’s green spaces, particularly in upper Manhattan. Henderson will be joined by four other professional dancers for performances at 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 26.
The world premiere of SOLACE is Henderson’s first full-length work. The piece utilizes the ecology and community of Inwood Hill Park. The site-specific dance will be performed without recorded music. Instead, the dancers will move to the natural soundscape created by their own bodies and the park itself. In a high-traffic public space, SOLACE will be viewable from various vantage points, and the ensemble will need to be spontaneous and adaptable, creating a unique performance in the exact moment of time.
Venue: Inwood Hill Park
