Nacera Belaza’s Le Cri, photo by Corinne Darde
Saturday’s opening celebration of Crossing the Line in Central Park was pretty soggy, but there are many more promising events – ones that don’t rely on good weather – as the festival continues through October 3rd at various cultural institutions throughout New York City.
This week, in a co-production between Danspace Project and Crossing the Line, French-based Algerian choreographer Nacera Belaza will make her US debut. Belaza and her sister, Dalila Belaza, will perform Le Cri, a duet that explores our desire for spirituality through minimal movement. The piece is set to a range of music including Maria Callas and Amy Winehouse. Le Cri runs from September 17th through 19th, 8 PM, at Danspace Project: 131 East 10th Street at 2nd Avenue, in St. Mark’s Church. Tickets can be ordered at Danspace Project or by calling 866.811.4111.
