take a number...

A statistical adventure into the numbers that make our city the diverse and disparate metropolis that it is. Choreographer/demographic analyst, Vicky Virgin, investigates how art and statistical literacy intersect in the public realm. 
She will direct a band of roving performers as they travel east and west along 14th Street, stopping along the way, as they engage the public with provocative statistics about the city.

Ode to the City Elastic    
Data Couplets    

In our city's flow and sway, I was asking for something specific 
Thinking of Whitman, the corolla of souls in the sidwalk statistic.   
Among the million-four workers, I wought out the mystic 
In the daily flashmob at trainstops, a third nondomestic   
Rolling r's and curling n's, a common poetic  
Dominicano, Puertoricano - half of Latinos keep their native phonetic.   
Tu eres guapo, mi hijo, hermano - eyes flash black 
Lining MacDonald, a patch of sunned earth for the morning worktruck
