Choreographed by Louise Ebersole for Under the Viaduct 2015, an art & lifestyle series where folks can meet, bike, skate or dine in an open-air plaza. Situated in West Harlem on 12th Avenue and near the Hudson River, residents and fellow New Yorkers can enjoy passive recreation in the daytime and when the sun starts going down, engage in dance, digital and reflective art.
The premiere of Shoreline is based on movement themes of “ebbing and flowing”. Dancers will cluster onto the grassy lawn between the two piers on the shore. Once assembled, the dancers will progress to a canon of set material, which will evolve into a mass of bodies, again moving with “ebbing and flowing” ideas, ending as the dancers move in a flock-like fashion off down the path, indicating the end of the piece.
