Times Square NYC (@timessquarenyc) — The Official Instagram for Times Square
Earlier this month, the Broadway Plazas between 43rd & 44th Sts was brought to life with Caroline Shaw’s (@carolineadelaideshaw) awe-inspiring score ‘Partita for 8 voices’, sung by the Grammy-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth (@roomfulofteeth). Free and open to the public, the performance was curated by Raul Zbengheci and directed by Ximena Garnica, with dancers from the Leimay Ensemble, as part of Prototype Festival. ‘Partita for 8 voices’ draws inspiration from the work of artist Sol LeWitt, square dance calls, Inuit-inspired hocketing, and the American folk hymn “Shining Shore”. The Pulitzer Prize-winning piece was created as a multi-year process involving extended residencies, vocal training, and walks to Times Square in the middle of the night.

'I was crying out at life' by visual artist and director Vergine Keaton inverts classical hunting and landscape scenes from 19th-century engravings to tell a tale of stags chasing hounds. Then, curiously, the ground shifts and rises, and the animals race together in unison, no longer at odds with one another as they become vulnerable to a larger phenomenon. Watch this inventive and exciting work in #TimesSquare at 11:57p.m. nightly throughout the month of January. Presented in partnership with French Institute Alliance Française (@fiafny).
