Made possible by chashama (

In this site-specific performance, we inhabit the Urban Garden space for 6 days between hours 8PM and 12AM. “Time-space capsule”invites the artists and the audience to enter a suspended time-space in the midst of ever accelerating New York City in search for glimpses of stillness, simplicity, nature, and beauty. We use movement, non-movement, visibility and invisibility, vulnerability, and public engagement as vehicles for transformation.
