Heard-NY by Nick Cave at Grand Central Terminal

We're super-excited about Heard•NY by Nick Cave, the performance art piece that's about to turn Grand Central Terminal into a colorful stage over spring break. From Monday, March 25, to Sunday, March 31, a "herd" of costumed dancers dressed as otherworldly horses will perform a dance piece conceived and choreographed by the Chicago-based artist twice a day: at 11am and 2pm. The piece, like much of Nick Cave's oeuvre, is a dramatic blend of visual art, costume design and dance (Cave is even an Alvin Ailey dancer himself). We'll be at the first performance on Monday morning, so check back with us early next week for pictures of the actual performance.
