At the FIAF and various other locations across New York City

Crossing the Line Festival 2022 is the 15th edition of the French Institute Alliance Française’s edgy showcase for creative talents from around the globe, with an emphasis on the French-speaking world. Highlights include the U.S. premiere of acclaimed choreographer Gisèle Vienne’s CROWD, an exploration of ecstatic experience inspired by the early 1990s club scene in Berlin and the Detroit techno music she encountered there, as well as Clin d’oeil, the exhibition of one of Omar Ba’s most important historical works at the FIAF Gallery, in conjunction with his solo show at the new Templon Gallery in Chelsea.
