This Friday: Tough Decisions

One of the best and most frustrating things about living in New York is that the realm of cool stuff to do and see is so much wider than the realm of what can be done.  Even for dance.  This Friday is coming at me like a speeding train, and I am indecisive in the face of so many options!  Competing for my attention (and yours?) are:

Food For Thought at St Marks Church
Danspace’s food drive series, just in time for Thanksgiving, is just $5 with two cans of food (or $10 without).  On Friday, the passionate and multi-talented Maura Donohue curates.  I am not familiar with all of the artists, but I’ve been curious to get another look at Monstah Black since his studio showing at DTW.

60×60 Dance at the World Financial Center Winter Garden
One-minute dances by 60 choreographers.  The Urgent Artist tipped me off about this series here (scroll down).  It sounds refreshing.

Facebook User Labor Enactments by Ursula Endlicher at the New School’s The Internet as Playground and Factory Conference on Digital Labor
I know that’s a mouthful, and visiting those links may or may not illuminate what it is that is actually going on.  I just know that I saw Endlicher’s last show (reviewed here in the Rail) and I want to catch as much as I can before she jets out of New York and off to Japan for her next installation.  The New School performance starts at 6:00 PM.

Performance Club goes to Cycatrix Aptitude at 100 Grand St
I hate to miss PClub events (though I do, often), and Claudia’s phrase “Psychopoetic Romanian Vaudeville” is so appealing.  But I’d still need to RSVP.
Here’s hoping some of you may decide to spend your Friday evening at one of these events, so I cannot see them all.
Update: The Ursula Endlicher event is at 66 West 12th, Room 404.  Admission is free but you must register.

  1. clearly you should come with us!


  2. Another one of the most frustrating things about living in New York is when you leave New York to take a vacation and then get depressed about how many exciting dance events you’re going to miss! Sad, but true (and I guess I can’t complain *too* much because vacations are a good thing). Have fun deciding what to see.


  3. but a nice thing about living in nyc is that we have one of the most vibrant performance criticism circuits around (thanks at this point in large part to blogs) … here’s my take on friday:
