This is not a thrill-seeking student's method of getting to class on time. This is art. Specifically, "Man Walking Down the Side of a Building," iconic choreographer Trisha Brown's famous piece in which a dancer, supported by rigging, strolls down the side of a building (in this case, the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Center at UCLA). It was presented by the Center for the Art of Performance and vertical-dance pioneers Bandaloop as part of a multi-venue retrospective of Brown's work.
