Prior to the six show run of Variations on Themes from Lost and Found: Scenes from a Life and other works by John Bernd at St. Mark’s Church, Danspace Project partners with the New York City AIDS Memorial to present a special free open rehearsal at the site of the Memorial.
Dedicated on World AIDS Day, December 1, 2016, the Memorial sits on a triangular site that was most recently part of the former St. Vincent’s Hospital campus. The New York City AIDS Memorial honors the more than 100,000 New Yorkers who have died of AIDS and acknowledges the contributions of caregivers and activists who mobilized, ultimately changing the trajectory of the epidemic. The Memorial aims to inspire visitors to remember and reflect through the maintenance of its permanent, architecturally significant site and through educational and cultural programming.
Nick Hallett is the Guest Curator of the 2023 season of live art at the New York City AIDS Memorial. More information can be found at nycaidsmemorial.org/spring23
