Pentacle: Within and Between Us
Wednesday, April 24, 2019
6:00 PM–8:00 PM
Experience site-specific dance in the Rubin galleries by some of New York’s most inspiring choreographers, presented in partnership with the arts organization Pentacle. The performances will reflect the theme of power, which radiates from our galleries as part of a yearlong exploration of the topic.
On Wednesday, April 24, witness a performance from choreographer Antonio Ramos at 6:00 PM, 6:45 PM, or 7:30 PM.
Pentacle’s Dance Series at the Rubin Museum of Art is supported by private funds from Mertz Gilmore Foundation and the Howard Gilman Foundation, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
