The NARS Foundation is delighted to announce its participation in the New Museum's Ideas City F estival on Saturday\, May 4. Perambulant\, a series of live perfor mances and workshops\, invites the public to engage in spontaneous and guided interactions throughout the day.  Performances by artists Nancy Nowacek\, Katya Grokhovsky\, twin brothers Alan and Michael Fleming\, and choreographer Corinna Brown and the Dean Street FOO Dance will be intersper sed with cross-disciplinary movement workshops for children and adults.

The artists will lead workshops that encourage the audience to ex plore the functional capacity of the body as an untapped resource. The perf ormance project “Insourcing” by Nowacek will tap into the unused muscle pow er of New Yorkers by engaging a chain of sidewalk-bound citizens in the rel ay of an object across the IDEAS CITY territory. Starting at the festival’s perimeter\, the artist will begin transport of a large object too unwieldy for her to move alone by enlisting the aid of those around her. Hitchhikin g rides with various New Yorkers as far as they can go\, the object will be come flotsam in the tide of pedestrians\, making its way to the festival ce nter over the course of the afternoon. Grokhovsky will investigate the ofte n untapped and ignored potential of touch and connection with strangers in her live durational performance\, “Slow Dance.”

Alan and Micha el Fleming will present a series of architectural interventions using artis ts’ bodies. Incorporating different bodily forms into the architectural fac ades of the Lower East Side\, the artist duo will act as living ornaments o n the surface of the building’s exterior. Through these various interventio nist actions they hope to re-examine the body as object\, structure\, or su pport. Brown’s work will explore a psychotherapeutic awareness of the body in urban spaces. Brown’s Dean Street FOO Dance will perform a Butoh-inspire d version of the classic children’s book Madeline. Brown will then invite t he public/audience to participate in “Sidewalk Butoh” where she will psycho therapeutically guide participants on a journey of transformation from huma n body to elements of nature to man-made materials\, internally juxtaposing natural and artificial worlds in an internal dance.
