Date:

  • Saturday, October 3, 2020 | 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Location: IATI Theater (64 E. 4th Street, NYC 10003) | Sidewalk

IATI Theater presents an outdoor and socially-distanced exhibition of 101.2. As we aim to keep bringing high quality works of art to New Yorkers during these difficult times, we are offering this visual project free of charge in collaboration with our neighboring theater organizations.

In order to make this event safe for everyone, our presentation will be held outdoors, in front of our theater. We request attendees to wear masks at all times and preserve safe physical distancing.

ABOUT 101.2

Filmed in early May of 2020 while most of the world was still under lockdown, dancers used the LFDTCLASS framework to create solo work informed by our recent project, ‘Mapping Now: Vital Little Plans’ , a map inspired by New York City’s grid systems on the Lower East Side. The map is annotated with statements inspired by the writings of Jane Jacobs and are gentle suggestions or prompts that can be taken into action through reflection, in movement, or on the streets.

In response to Jacobs’ prompts and her work’s foundational principle that: any given public space is defined by the degree to which we participate with it, 101.2 has dancers engage in a movement-based dialogue about the human experience that questions and maps the way we move in public space, and ponders notions of access, of privilege or isolation.
