camminando & performance | Midtown Manhattan, May 3

A walk from the Upper West to Midtown leads me to the Lever House, the 1952 curtain-wall skyscraper designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, located across the street from the iconic Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The Lever House host "FlucT" curated by Performa. The title  is "shorthand for fluctuation" and  the eighteen dancers performance is created to "offer an embodied response to our online diets of incessant information."
"FlucT" is performed on three levels of the Lever House which also host artwork courtesy of Salon 94,  Maccarone, and Rodarte.
