Warning: The Hudson River is under attack! For the next three nights, a pack of wild she-wolves will haunt the trees, water, and buildings of downtown in an innovative site-specific sound-and-light show titled She-Wolves from the Tiber to the Hudson. Originally displayed in 2006 in Rome (where, according to ancient myth, the city’s founders were raised by a gentle, kind-hearted she-wolf), the installation includes stunning projected animations created by a spectacular array of visual artists like Kiki Smith, Kristen Jones, and Maureen Selwood, and brought to life with the eerie musical compositions of Nico Muhly and Alvin Curran, among others. The show, which will be held at a different downtown location each night, kicks off the River to River Festival of summertime arts events.
