Invisible Cities

Review by Willard Manus

Teamed up with The Industry on INVISIBLE CITIES was LA Dance Project, the artist-collective co-founded by choreographer-dancer, Benjamin Milliepied.

As choreographed by Danielle Agami, eight dancers from LA Dance took part in the opera and contributed significantly to the unique proceedings. Sometimes appearing suddenly in the terminal's main hall, other times popping up suddenly in its adjoining patios, gardens and waiting rooms, the dancers performed their expressive routines with admirable concentration and discipline (even when transient and/or homeless folk intruded into their space). The dancers' finest moments came when they pranced about effortlessly and exhiliratingly on Union Station's 500-foot-long ticket counter.
