New Haven’s Exact Change

This past weekend I had the pleasure of taking photographs for the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, which sponsors a totally unique annual event called “Exact Change.”  On five bus routes in and around the city, riders are treated to seemingly spontaneous performances by local artists.  This year I photographed the Elm City Dance Collective dancing on route D from North Haven to New Haven.  The dancers were incredible–they used every inch of that bus space, including the section ABOVE the hand rails–and never lost their balance (I did).  Riders were surprised and amazed, and many recorded the dancers on their cell phones.  The piece they performed was a riff on models on a runway.  The route ended on the New Haven green, where they danced impromptu to the music of the Kings of Harmony and got the public involved.
