Starting today, you may notice some unusual activity occurring on Market Street. Don't mistake it for the usual cast of crazies known for loitering and creating ruckus of all sorts on the sidewalk. These people aren't homeless and begging for money, but rather make up a troupe of characters telling the story of eight prominent African Americans who lived and worked near Market Street during the mid-19th century.
Fall arts are in full force and if there’s one “out there” performance you should give a go, it’s The Symmetry Project Study #19: Solo Medi(t)ations/Intersections. Presented by Gravity dance-theater at Intersection for the Arts, this live-art fluid installation will be on view for two days only (Tuesday, 9/22 and Wednesday, 9/23). Nothing short of an otherworldly experience, what you see is all you’ll get—two naked bodies, one male and one female, negotiating improvisational movement of bodies in space and time. The only rule: self-imposed symmetrical movement, relative to themselves or to each other.
