You Are Here is an ode to urban dwellers, the millions of citizens who live on top of each other, participate in the daily pedestrian dance of the sidewalk, street, and transit system, and who are part of a massive improvised narrative. It explores how we interact without looking at or touching each other, how we recharge at home each night, and how we head back onto the city’s stage again each morning, ready for more.
You Are Here premiered June 16 – 18, 2016 at the Kitchen, NYC. It is being presented by the American Dance Institute in their series ADI/NYC.
