The blossoms are gone on Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s (BBG) famous Cherry Esplanade, their delicate beauty replaced by another charm. In the late-setting sun a woman steps onto the grass, walking in arcs quite different from our normal, linear paths. Seven others join her, eight curving paths uniting in two intersecting lines like geese flocking; eight bodies fold and ripple. The lines melt. Running, leaping, the dancers make their way toward us down the long lawn.
