The High Line (Beginning at Chelsea Market Passage, near W16 St, and move south to The Standard, near Little W12 St). MAP

Do you want rock-hard abs? Slimmer hips and firmer buttocks? Do you reject the idea of autonomous art? Join Tyler Ashley and his group of dancers - the SARAHS - in today's most comprehensive exercise and education program in Constructivism! Don’t miss this opportunity to explore Constructivist concerns about the arrangement and power of the body in space through a unique mash-up of aerobics class clichés and a 19th century Czech “slet.” With explosive movement, live music, and audience interaction, Ashley and the SARAHS probe Constructivist preachings and design.

Direction by Tyler Ashley. Choreography by Tyler Ashley and the SARAHS (Tyler Ashley, Ethan Baldwin, Hooba Booba, Sarah Donnelly, Zoe Farmingdale, Sarah Holcman, Benjamin Kimitch, Cacá Macedo, Rakia Seaborn, Kris Seto, Ashley Walters, Theodor Wilson). Music and Sound by Theodor Wilson. Costumes designed by Alyssa Tang and Sole Salvo, inspired by Stepanova. Production Manager, Sarah Donnelly. Press Manager, Victoria Michelotti.

The performance will begin on the High Line in the Chelsea Market Passage, near West 16th Street, and move south to The Standard, New York near Little West 12th Street.

In the case of rain, the performance will take place on Sunday, November 13, 12:00 PM.
