Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions.

Now in its third season, Socrates and Norte Maar present a residency and performance program that brings New York-based choreographers and their dancers to a unique waterfront environment. Three weeklong residencies will each culminate in a free public dance performance on an outdoor stage in the park. Throughout their creative process, participating choreographers will be in full view of the public so that visitors will witness cutting-edge dance and movement in the making, and experience fully-produced performances every Saturday.

As part of the Young Choreographers program, Dance at Socrates will also be pairing aspiring teen choreographers (ages 13-18) with experienced Norte Maar choreographers in residence. These week-long residencies will culminate in the presentation of a new short dance, to be featured in the Dance at Socrates Saturday performances.

<![CDATA[Beach Sessions: Shannon Gillen]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/08/22/beach-sessions http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/08/22/beach-sessions Date: August 22, 2015

Shannon Gillen is the founder, artistic director and choreographer of New York's visionary new dance company Vim Vigor, which is currently being launched. Through a prolific body of work, Gillen has pioneered a recognizable artistic language that possesses heroic physicality, electric emotional life, and cinematic imagery that illuminates and heightens the narrative imagination. In a 2013 Brooklyn Magazine article that named her as one of city's top twenty artists, Gillen was championed for her 'emotionally compelling' work that 'transcends the things it references and achieves a sort of platonic ideal of intelligent and elevated movement'. And L Magazine later wrote that Gillen's dancers 'force you to the edge of your seat, breath held, hands clenched'.
