Swiss Institute announces a new performance and event program entitled Lunar Intervals. In the lead up to Swiss Institute’s move to 38 St Marks Pl in the East Village in Spring 2018, each event takes place during a different phase of the lunar cycle, from the waxing crescent to the new moon, in a different location in New York City. Themes of the season are suggested by the lunar structure including cycles, songs and shifts between light and darkness. Each event will be followed by the publication of a 7-inch record.
