Dark Horse/Black Forest at The Gershwin Hotel
Presented by Performance Space 122 and Neke Carson

A special Dance Installation: Space is Limited, Book in Advance

What is DARK HORSE/BLACK FOREST?

It’s an intense love story presented in the most intimate of spaces: the bathroom.

It’s designed to be bought and owned for an evening in the privacy of your own bathroom in your home or special event venue.

It’s dance. It’s art. It’s interior design.

It’s critically acclaimed and causing quite a stir.

And… It’s currently being performed in an exclusive engagement in the lobby bathroom of The Gershwin Hotel NOW through Sunday, June 28.

More about the limited run at The Gershwin…
The W.C. at The Gershwin Hotel in New York City has been transformed by flourescents, mirrors, and video screens. The audience is privy to an emotional and private exchange between a couple that evolves into a formal, sensual dance. There are two casts that rotate bi-weekly: a man and a woman (Heather Olson & Joseph Poulson), and two men (Luke Miller & Darrin Wright).

“[Castro is] as much an installation artist as a choreographer” – Gia Kourlas, The New York Times

“Castro’s smart, kooky shenanigans captivate…” – Chris Dohse, The Village Voice

“Castro’s upcoming duet takes voyeurism to a precipice… it doesn’t happen on a stage but in a bathroom like yours.” – Lori Ortiz
