LINCOLN CENTER OUT OF DOORS Season Begins 7/25
Lincoln Center Out of Doors, which runs from July 25 to August 12, will feature 100 free performances across the plazas of Lincoln Center. Seventeen premieres and debuts highlight the three weeks of this latest edition of one of the country's longest-running, free, outdoor festivals. Week I descriptions and a chronological listing of performances follow, or visit: www.LCOutofDoors.org.
On opening night, Wednesday, July 25, everyone's invited to the party with the man who wrote and produced the music that defined popular dance in the 1970s, 80s and beyond, NILE RODGERS. Rodgers gathers together the CHIC ORGANIZATION, some of that era's-and today's-leading musicians, to get Le Freak on at Damrosch Park. Opening the evening, DJ KS*360, aka hip-hop DJ, dancer, choreographer, and poet KWIKSTEP, joined by members of his Full Circle Souljahs musicians and dancers, offers up 70s funk, 80s soul/R&B, Afrobeat, and disco from New York's basements, rooftops, apartments, and dance clubs to create a giant block party in the Park, BEYOND THE GROOVE. Kwik provides "Soulutions" because he says, "good music always has the answer to your questions and the Soulutions to your problems."
ALL EVENTS ARE FREE; no tickets required. Events take place on the plazas of Lincoln Center.
