This week’s Target Free Thursday brings choreographer Molissa Fenley and her dancers to the stage at Lincoln Center. Watch as they perform Dance an Impossible Space, which explores how to make the work “possible” – the dancer travels to the perimeter of the space only to ricochet back to the other side. The piece is marked by the delightful struggle to express a trajectory of motion within tight contraints. The original vocal composition by Erin Gee adds yet another dimension to the performance. Event begins at 7:30 p.m.

Tonight’s your last chance to check out the MoMA Nights event happening at the MoMA Sculpture Garden. Indie rock duo Widowspeak will provide the tunes this evening with Molly Hamilton singing behind the mic and playing the rhythm guitar and Robert Earl Thomas on lead guitar. These Brooklynites have been busy touring and making fun music videos like the one they created for their single “Locusts” (lets just say they used go-go dancers). Set starts at 6:30 p.m. and even goes from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
