Escape From the House of Mercy

Catherine Gallant/Dance presents a live outdoor 1/2 hour version of their latest work Escape from the House of Mercy, inspired by The House of Mercy, once located at Inwood Hill Park in Upper Manhattan.   Described as “a home for abandoned and troubled women,” it was, in fact, closer to a prison or workhouse with frequent inhumane and demoralizing treatment.  Gallant seeks to mine the feelings of vulnerability as they relate to the present in the drive for social freedoms and equity.  Presented by the Open Culture program, which places performances on NYC streets.
