PASS: Breathing with Strangers

A dancer lifts another dancer Stephen de las Heras

Melissa Riker/Kinesis Project dance theatre’s newest large-scale, outdoor performance, Breathing with Strangers, is a ragged, sweeping and surprising love-song to New York City. Dancers appear and disappear as the choreography twists around and within the levels, buildings, and hillsides of Snug Harbor’s Shinbone Alley.

This project invites the audience to witness, interact, and follow the performance — and consider how generous moments between strangers can occur.

WHEN: 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM performances
WHERE: Meet inside Newhouse Center near Building C entrance | The performance will continue along Shinbone Alley
Q + A and reception after 4 PM performance
Admission: $10 | Snug Harbor Member: $8


Kinesis Project’s residency and performance at Snug Harbor are held in partnership with the Department of Creative and Performing Arts at the College of Staten Island as part of the CUNY Dance Initiative. Breathing with Strangers is made possible in part with funding from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation and administered by LMCC. Photo credit: Stephen de las Heras
