Horizon Events is a series of evening-length group dances constructed specifically for the MoMA PS1's third floor main gallery. Partly improvisational, the installations are designed to negotiate proximity and distance, reality and fantasy. Abstraction and representation collide in queer framings of space, time and bodies-in-action.
