De La Guarda

A few hours after the tournament, I found myself in a Union Square-area warehouse space flying high above a crowd on a wire in the clutches of a bare-assed man wearing a crash helmet.

I’m talking of course about De La Guarda, the amazing interactive mostly aerial performance art piece originally from Argentina. If you haven’t seen it and you live in New York, you’ve got to go.

It was the most singularly surreal experience I’ve had in quite a while.
