In a special performance for the 2018 River to River Festival, Of Granite and Glass is part of choreographer Catherine Galasso’s 10-part series, Of Iron and Diamonds, based on Boccaccio’s 14th century Decameron. The performance will combine her signature cinematic tableaux, whimsical nonlinear narratives, and charismatic performers to engage in a choreographic dialogue with the architecture and atmosphere of Brookfield Place, transforming the Winter Garden's grand marble staircase into a dramatic backdrop for a dance evoking failed spring breaks, ecstatic dance rituals, and sacred StairMaster routines. Presented by Arts Brookfield.
On Granite and Glass is co-commissioned by Arts Brookfield and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and is presented as part of the 2018 River To River Festival.
