Ten dancers stationed on rooftops around Wooster and Lafayette Streets, NY mimic each other’s movements in an improvised and mutable series of movements. The dance tests the erosion of movement by transmission as in telegraphy. It’s also about revealing the majesty and privacy of downtown roofs and the sculptural effect of its water towers.
