farrago Mikhail Baryshnikov Book Signing
For dance fans, shutterbugs, and wannabe Carrie Bradshaws alike: a chance to ogle the 61-year-old’s fine physique—er, photos—up close. In advance of his run next week at the Harris, Misha signs copies of Merce My Way, his new book of photographs documenting recent works by the late, great choreographer Merce Cunningham.
