Monica Bill Barnes and Robbie Saenz de Viteri return to Brookfield Place for It’s 3:07 Again, an interactive digital dance & theater experience where the audience choose their own path, dropping into the interior life of people in public with a click. With barriers and distance between us, we look inward for real interaction. Step into the big movements and small moments that dwell inside of New Yorkers as they pass through Brookfield Place a year into living with a pandemic. You have thirty minutes, there’s no way to see it all.
Monica Bill Barnes and Robbie Saenz de Viteri also developed and performed Days Go By at Brookfield Place in October 2019. You can view a clip of the previous project here.
