Autumn Crossing: A Dance Performance on the High Line


On Wednesday, September 29, Friends of the High Line presented Autumn Crossing, a free open-air performance by dance artist Naomi Goldberg Haas, her dance company, Dances For A Variable Population, and senior citizens from Hudson Guild, a multi-service agency that provides programs and services to seniors and other residents of the Chelsea community.

Autumn Crossing celebrates our community, the joy of dance, and the arrival of fall in New York City. It features rich, colloquial movements that seek to erase the traditional boundaries between dancers and non-dancers by mixing senior citizens and young adults and professionals. The performance explores how these disparate groups can learn from one another about the nature of movement and expression.

Autumn Crossing will be performed on the High Line Wednesday, September 29, Thursday, September 30, Friday, October 1, and Saturday, October 2. Haas will also lead a free workshop on Saturday, September 25 for those interested in discovering the joy of dance.

Visit our Event Calendar for details about performances and the dance workshop.

Autumn Crossing is commissioned by Friends of the High Line and presented in partnership with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. Autumn Crossing Crossing is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Fund for Creative Communities, supported by the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency, and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
