Agora was inspired and created in celebration of the historic McCarren Park pool site, a 50,000 square foot abandoned pool in Williamsburg. The site-specific dance performance invited the community to re-experience a moment in movement in the monumental public space. Performed by 30 dancers displaying simultaneous events covering the vast expense of the pool basin, Agora produced the illusion of travel through the different layers of visceral urban experiences and explored the phenomenon of agoraphobia as a social and physical reaction to urban architecture.
