It may sound like a luxury apartment building, but "ONE at Central Park" is actually a pretty cool-sounding aerial dance project to be performed above Wollman Rink this October.
In the words of the project's website: "ONE at Central Park is a first time, one-hour experience of moving sculpture comprised of human bodies for mass public viewing. Conceived, created and choreographed by Aly Rose, it consists of over 100 performers dancing while suspended 150 feet in the air within 6 cantilever structures erected inside Wollman Rink."
You can watch a video of the concept at http://vimeo.com/61069166, and read more about it at www.oneatcentralpark.com.
Here's the catch -- they are trying to raise $100,000 on Kickstarter in the next five days and are still $14,000 short. We threw in a couple of bucks because we think it sounds like a fun idea. (We are in no way affiliated with the artists -- we just love dance, acrobatics, and Central Park.)
