The Carpet Series at St. Nicholas Park

Pigeonwing Dance will perform The Carpet Series at St Nicholas Park on September 18 from 4-5pm, presented free of charge by the Friends of St. Nicholas Park.  (135th St. Plaza)

Pigeonwing Dance’s Carpet Series is a compact outdoor performance taking place on an 8×10 Persian carpet in parks and on sidewalks across New York City.  Showcasing the choreography of Guggenheim Fellow Gabrielle Lamb for five highly trained contemporary ballet dancers, this virtuosic and intricate dance is a study in contrasts: silk with asphalt, structured choreography with improvisation, and private space in public. 

Since its July 2020 premiere, The Carpet Series has been performed over 150 times in all five boroughs of NYC and has been featured in the New York Daily News and DANCE Magazine, which observed, “the geometric patterns of the Persian rug echo and amplify Lamb’s idiosyncratic movement vocabulary, which is both intensely intricate and unusually syncopated.”

The Carpet Series is generously supported by the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Corporation and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and by NoMAA Small Grants for Individual Artists, made possible with the support of New York-Presbyterian and the Hispanic Federation.

The event is finished.
