Tickets Now On Sale for Spring Works & Process
Now in its 30th year, the performing-arts series Works & Process at the Guggenheim is pleased to announce its spring 2014 season.
Highlights of the spring season include two new commissions by choreographer Emery LeCrone, each set to J.S. Bach’s Partita No. 2 in C Minor, one working with a classical dance vocabulary and one a contemporary work. Celebrated choreographer Nacho Duato will unveil his latest creation for Martha Graham Dance Company, before the work’s world premiere, and the Santa Fe Opera will preview excerpts of its new production of Dr. Sun Yat-sen prior to its American premiere. See a list of all spring programs in the calendar.
Since 1984, New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world in an intimate setting unlike any other. Each season, Works & Process champions new works and offers audiences unprecedented access to leading creators and performers, in 80-minute performances that uniquely combines artistic creation and stimulating conversation in the Guggenheim Museum’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed Peter B. Lewis Theater. A reception follows most programs, giving the audience a chance to mingle with artists. Described by the New York Times as “a popular series devoted to shedding light on the creative process,” Works & Process is produced by founder Mary Sharp Cronson.
Lead funding is provided by The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation with additional support from The Christian Humann Foundation and Leon Levy Foundation. This program is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. 30th Anniversary chairs include Anne H. Bass; Caroline Cronson; Ben Rodriguez Cubeñas, Rockefellar Brothers Fund; and Darren Walker, The Ford Foundation.
