Think High

The artists begin a long distance run in Harlem, making stops at pre-selected sites throughout Manhattan where historically significant “race related” events have occurred. Each location is reactivated by the artists as they pause to read relevant text, make poetic responses, or recite historical documentation. When the runners reach 14th Street at the East River, they will run across 14th Street to the Hudson River performing tasks that continue to challenge their physical and psychological conditions as they engage in dialogue about RACE.
