Nicholas Leichter Dance: A Space Funk Invasion

July 20-22, 27-29: Performance at 6:00PM
July 23, 30: Performance at 1:00PM

The Seaport, Historic Cobblestone District at Fulton and Front Streets


Subway: A/C Broadway-Nassau Street; 2/3/4/5/J/M/Z Fulton Street


Nicholas Leichter Dance and Monstah Black bring the energy, sweat, swagger, history and future of funk music, culture, fashion, and dance to The Seaport’s historic cobblestone district. A Space Funk Invasion will be performed for bystanders and patrons of four outdoor bars that form the perimeter of the area, promising a free side of funk for the burgers and beer. Performed to music by Daft Punk, The Time, and Monstah Black.

Artistic Director Nicholas Leichter choreographs cultural narratives in which movement tells a story. Leichter’s approach draws from many sources, including traditional, contemporary, folk, and popular dance music forms, which he and his diverse company members fuse with style and substance into a dialogue across cultures.

New inspiration

the old man in the times square subway playing “You Light Up my Life” on a musical saw. he is also giving some pretty amazing 70’s fashion.

take it by storm (king)

wall_largeDave and I went to Storm King last weekend on the ol Coach bus. It was actually super cheap(44 roundtrip bus fare and admission) and convenient. No renting a car or having to plan ahead at all really! We spent the day up there and the only bad thing was the ice cream vending machine was broken!


There were lots of great things to see especially Andy Goldworthy’s stone fence handcrafted by 5 stonemasons over a period of 2 years from stones that were found on the old property. Maya Lin, who also created the Vietnam Memorial has created a large installation of waves- mounds of earth that mimick the ocean. It is a pretty great day trip. It comes highly recommended and Jane approved!
