Video: A Short Film Documenting NYC's Street Performers

  • Posted 51 months Ago

Kingston University student Scott Carthy has created a 7-minute short film documenting the talented street dancers and performers of New York City. "In the midst of an urgent and alienating reform are New York City’s renowned subway car performers; arrests have trebled in a New York minute with panhandlers, the category including said dancers, currently holding 256 convictions since mid-March," says Carthy. "As part of an ongoing series I spent two days befriending and documenting these performers, experiencing first-hand the perspective of both performer and audience - unexpectedly witnessing the remarkable cultural resonance these individuals have in the New York public sphere."
