The Dance Enthusiast Asks The Ailey School Dancers: What is it like to be a Dancing Horse?

An Interview with dancers Samantha Vastine and Irving Amigon at Grand Central Station.

Chicago-based artist Nick Cave transformed Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall with a herd of thirty colorful life-size horses that broke into choreographed movement—or “crossings”— twice a day, accompanied by live music. The project was presented by Creative Time and MTA Arts for Transit as part of a series of events celebrating the centennial of Grand Central.
