Take a Number is a statistical voyage into the numbers that make NYC the diverse and dynamic metropolis that it is. Choreographer/demographic analyst, Vicky Virgin, investigates how art and statistical literacy intersect in the public realm. She directs a band of roving performers as they make their way across 14th Street, stopping along the way to disseminate data. Statistics written on old magnetic tape will be reeled out from behind a cardboard box, while a cameraman and interviewer test your knowledge of the city. A string of maps and graphs will be displayed nearby. Look for eye-glasses and big pair of scissors.
