In March 2015, Weis launched the first of a series of installations at WeisAcres that would eventually take over the entire building at 537 Broadway. Time Travel with Madame Xenogamy is the second iteration.

The audience moved from room to room, looking at different dances in different spaces and configurations. In one room, a fortuneteller could read your future by gazing into a crystal ball at historic dances. In another room, audiences gazed through windows across a courtyard to view dances in other spaces, performed by Douglas Dunn and Dancers. Through another door, performers danced in close quarters to observers.

Dancer viewed in crystal ball: Steve Paxton
