Ballet at the Guggenheim Museum New York Fall 2017



The Guggenheim Museum in New York offers the following ballet events as part of its popular "Works and Process" series.

Works & Process Rotunda Project: Daniil Simkin: Falls the Shadow

September 4 and 5, 2017 at 8 pm and 9:30 pm

Commissioned by Works & Process and created by American Ballet Theatre (ABT) principal Daniil Simkin, Falls the Shadow is a new production featuring Simkin, ABT soloist Cassandra Trenary, Hubbard Street dancer Ana Lopez, and Brett Conway; choreography by Alejandro Cerrudo; projection design by Dmitrij Simkin; and costume design by Dior. The performers’ movements will be captured in real time by motion sensors, generating 3-D mapped visuals projected onto the surface of the rotunda to create an immersive experience that merges technology, music, visual art, fashion, and dance.
This 30-minute performance will be viewed from the ramps and requires audience members to stand for the duration of the program.
