Corbeaux (Crows)

Part of Crossing the Line Festival

Corbeaux (Crows) is a hypnotic, site-specific living sculpture that interrupts and transforms public spaces. Dark silhouettes of women emerge from the shadows and silently fan out across the Brooklyn Museum’s Beaux-Arts Court. Moroccan performers are joined by a local cast of New Yorkers for this frenzied, full-body performance. Forming alchemical arrangements, they move again and again, erupting into an immersive chorus of piercing sounds and rhythmic cries, making all notions of time and space disappear.
