UnderOneDances: in transit

Directed & Produced by Kyla Ernst-Alper and Maxx Passion

 

Performances by Hassan Christopher, Kyla Ernst-Alper, Aidan Feldman, Devin Oshiro, Maxx Passion, Edgar Peterson, Vanessa Salgado, Miriam Wasmund

 

A transmedia piece featuring short screen-dances that capture professional dancers as they travel through the public transit system of New York City. After and during the installation, the audience is invited to read interviews with the dancers on the project website in order to learn more about their lives in NYC. A soundscape voiced by the dancers and underscored by the vibrations of the MTA accompanies the collection of danced vignettes.

 

 

We are thrilled to be a part of the New York Transit Museum's PLATFORM!

An exciting series of cross-discpliary programs created in, around, and with transit
