For those of you lucky enough to be based in NY, Elastic City’s Director Todd Shalom has created a new participatory walk – Fabstractions – that is not to be missed!
Elastic City commissions emerging and established artists to create participatory walks in cities around the world. These walks tend to focus less on providing factual information and more on heightening our awareness, exploring our senses and making new group rituals in dialogue with public space.

Fabstractions is an evening walk nearby and inside Prospect Park. Participants will use poetic techniques to create abstract responses to found imagery on the walk, crafting solos, duets and collective performances as we go. The group will construct a dance that glows, a light-play from car reflections, fresh dirt theatre and a waterfall sonata.
This walk holds 10 people. Fabstractions will be held in English but Todd also speaks Spanish. Feel free to bring a camera or videocamera, but please do not use a flash. Light will be provided.
