Third Rail Projects and two good eggs in midtown

The egg--the pre-Christian, springtime symbol of regenerated life and hidden goodies--gets a new twist in Yolk. The sensuous, mysterious dance installation, unfolding over just one half hour, is the latest site-specific piece by Third Rail Projects, the award-winning team of Zach MorrisTom PearsonJennine Willett (Looking GlassThen She Fell).

It's nearly Easter, sure. But those eggs?

Go to midtown's Grace Plaza (1114 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street) at either 12:30pm or 1:10pm tomorrow, and you'll find two large, gleaming white eggs set atop elegant black-draped pedestals. Inside the eggs, dancers Roxanne Kidd and Jessy Smith move slowly, dreamily tumbling and undulating as if protected by an amniotic sac, and run their hands over the eggs' red felt lining. No Easter bunny in sight, but keep watch for a few surprises along the way. A meditative and beguiling way to spend your lunch hour!
