Figures dressed in white form a “living gallery” around Henry Moore’s Reclining Figure on Hearst Plaza in this latest iteration of pioneering choreographer Heidi Latsky’s powerful performance installation. Premiered at Lincoln Center in 2015 to mark the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, ON DISPLAY features a range of performers, questioning ingrained expectations of who gets to be “onstage” and mainstream culture’s narrow definition of beauty.
