From Yvette's page:
The Pedestrian Project - What is it?
Yvette Helin ’s Pedestrian Project is an ongoing performance work created in New York City in 1990. The project consists of several performers wearing entirely black custom-made costumes that are modeled after the generic graphic images of people used on many types of signage. The Pedestrian characters are silent.
I first met Yvette back in the days of Cucaracha Theatre back in the early 1990's (and met her again a few years ago on a bike tour).
This should be great, don't miss it! Saturday, October 4 (2-5pm); 11 (3-6pm); 25 (2-6pm). 14th Street btwn First & Ninth Avenues.
