Inside the Griffin Theater there will be performances of Norma Jeane Baker of Troy, a spoken and sung performance piece written by Anne Carson and starring Ben Whishaw (April 6 – May 19, 2019), as well as a staged concert by Björk in The McCourt space (May 6 – June 1, 2019). POWERPLAY, a production by multimedia artist LATASHÁ in collaboration with The Shed it’s DIS OBEY program for New York City high school students will premiere for two days and explores women-centered ideas of power and collective action through dance, spoken word and moving images (May 18 – May 19, 2019). The only permanent installation at The Shed is In Front of Itself by Lawrence Wiener. Weiner’s piece is a site-specific installation embedded in The Shed’s plaza.
