heard ny

heardny is an installation & performance piece that will be presented from monday 25 march through sunday 31 march, 2013, as part of a series of events celebrating grand central terminal's centennial.

artist nick cave will transform grand central terminal's vanderbilt hall into a pasture for a grazing herd of 30 fantastical life-size horses. sixty dance students from the ailey school will don cave's celebrated 'soundsuits' & perform specially choreographed 'crossings' at 11 a.m. & 2 p.m. every day.

cave worked closely with chicago-based choreographer william gill to design the dancers' movements, incorporating both choreographed & improvised movement. the horses will preform as a 'herd' in the vanderbilt hall or in smaller groups within the main concourse & throughout grand central terminal. 

this is a creative time project founded in 1974, creative time is a new york based non-projit that has commissioned & presented the most innovative art in the public realm throughout new york city, across the united states & around the world.

wish i was there!
