Niarchos Foundation Boosts N.Y.’s Lincoln Center Artistic Magnet

As New York slowly returns to partial life during the lingering COVID-19 pandemic, visitors to the famed Lincoln Center will see a new look in the world premiere of You Are Here, a public sculpture, sound, and live performance installation conceived by Andrea Miller, award-winning choreographer.

The commission is supported by the Arnhold Dance Innovation Fund (ADIF) and will be presented as part of Restart Stages beginning July 14, said the site IloveTheUpperWestSide.com.

It's part of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation-Lincoln Center Agora Initiative which activates outdoor space through artistic and community initiatives and reimagines public space for a new era, the report said.

It's also part of Miller's investigation of the human pursuit of understanding through the alchemy of performance that will give visitors a more interactive and different look at the famous outdoor space that's designed to become a site for communion to get through the pandemic in the spirit of human survival.

Sculptures created by Tony Award-winning scenic designer Mimi Lien will stand in the space of the human beings; each sculpture will house a speaker through which the audio portraits of New Yorkers are projected, said Broadway World.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
