New Yorkers at Grand Central were recently treated to a performance of dancers in straw horse costumes. Artist Nick Cave teamed up with MTA Arts for Transit to put on “Herd” for one week only. Students from The Ailey School put on the interesting costumes and danced to percussion and harp music. Very interesting!
The horse suits are the latest incarnation of one of Nick Cave’s trademarks, the Soundsuit — a sculpture that exists on it own but can also be worn and danced in…. When not in use, the horse suits are arranged on sawhorses and corralled behind a fence, making for a colorful diversion during your commute.
