Crosswalk Dances

Crosswalk Dances bring a fresh perspective to a commute, inviting dance into every day. Dancers enliven and connect each corner of an intersection as they move in tandem with pedestrians, performing through the countdown crosswalks. This piece is built to be watched for the full 25 minutes or for only moments as a viewer bikes, walks, skates, or drives by.
