Opening Celebration!
Crossing the Line 2009
Le Bal NYC
Saturday, September 12, 2009, from 2–6pm
Central Park’s East Meadow

Crossing the Line 2009 opens with Le Bal NYC, a dance party/picnic in Central Park’s East Meadow. Choreographers from France, including Germaine Acogny, Odile Duboc, Latifa Laâbissi, and Olivier Dubois present a fresh new take on the bal populaire, creating short dances to be taught section by section to the public.

Simultaneously, Omnivore New York, a brigade of innovative master chefs from both France and New York, reinvent the idea of the picnic. Samples of Crossing the Line Bento Boxes will be available, bringing together individual elements by Inaki Aizpitarte, Pascal Barbot, Alexandre Gauthier, Michel Bras, David Chang, and Wylie Dufresne.

Bring your own picnic, and join us for this free, family-friendly celebration in the park.
