I drove by this group of people dressed in fluorescent colored sweat-gear practicing [something] outside the downtown Austin post office, yesterday. I learn today that this is the Bodies in Urban Spaces dancers. Cool! From the website:
“…Bodies in Urban Spaces, besides being a wonder of organization and stamina, was a model of public art: free, fun, and transformative.” – Lisa Kraus Philadelphia Inquirer, 06.09.2008
Thanks to Austin Texas Daily Photo who also tells us you can catch the dancers today at 11AM in Republic Park.
