VIDEO: Dancing Through Alan Shields’s “Maze” Installation at Greenberg Van Doren

Last week Midtown’s Greenberg Van Doren Gallery unveiled its presentation of “Maze,” a 1981-82 installation by the late Alan Shields, with an opening night dance performance choreographed by Stephen Petronio, set to music composed by Tom Laurie and based on compositions written by Shields, and titled, fittingly, “Into the Maze.” In case you missed it, the following montage captures some of the energy of this delightful happening — check it out! 

Maze” remains on view at Greenberg Van Doren through December 21, and video of the opening night performance of “Into the Maze” can be watched in the gallery’s viewing room alongside the wearable objects Shields created and which the dancers wore.
