Behind The City

June 22nd -  July 1st, 2018
New York, NY


As part of its ongoing celebration of exceptional artistry, The Macallan presented Behind The City, Third Rail's most intimate work to date. New York City served as the stage, setting, and metaphor where couples discovered unexpected, dreamlike environments and narratives hidden behind closed doors. The work was a rumination on love, getting lost, and the memories that we imprint upon the city and it imprints upon us.  

Behind The City was presented in conjunction with The Macallan Speakeasy, a pop-up destination that served as an intimate gathering space to celebrate exceptional artists and provide a portal to carefully curated, innovative cultural experiences.
