I can't help but love a live performance which integrates its site directly into the action. ann and alexx make LILAC DANCES is a site-specific performance on the historic Lilac Steamship, currently docked on Pier 40, off the West Side Highway just north of Houston Street. Ann Robideaux and Alexandra Shilling's use of music, movement, and dance to interact with the ship's architecture. The show will run this weekend: October 2, 3, and 4 at 6:30 and 8:00 pm. Also happening is a site-specific exhibition, a group photography show at the Bowery Mission: Now and Then: Photography of the Bowery, which includes work by artist Louise Millmann. You can catch it any Thursday in October from 6:30 until 9:00 pm or November 6th at 1:00 pm.
