William Forsythe. A Quiet Evening of Dance. At the Shed. After some lighting difficulties the show went on with the lights up. Lots of intertwined limbs and staccato rhythms. The second half of the show was energetically my favorite. #theshed#ballet#dance#williamforsythe#nydance#hudsonyards
If you’ll be in NYC in the next week, go see my brother (as depicted in the orange shirt in this @newyorkermag cartoon) dance at @theshedny. The @nytimes referred to Riley as an “extraordinary dancer with silky athleticism” — you don’t want to miss it. #repost @eberginger with @get_repost ・・・ Look I’m a cartoon in The New Yorker!

The experience of watching "A Quiet Evening of Dance,” a new work by choreographer William Forsythe currently showing at @theshedny in Hudson Yards, is not dissimilar to that of meditating. Click the link in our bio to read our full take on the show.
In 1982, Agnes Denes planted two acres of wheat on the lower Manhattan landfill we now know as Battery Park. The project, titled “Wheatfield - A Confrontation” stared down Wall Street, one of New York’s most significant symbols of power and forced viewers to confront the divide between rich and poor, and how we embrace progress. In August that year, 1000 pounds of golden wheat was harvested and construction quickly began to build up the 92 acres of landfill. Agnes Denes extraordinary land art pieces will be on view at her solo exhibition at @TheShedNY. On view now through Jan 19th.
