Ballet-related events at Guggenheim Works & Process Fall 2014

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
1071 Fifth Avenue
New York, NY 10128
guggenheim.org

continues its "Works and Process" series this fall, including three programs of particular interest to ballet lovers:

DANCE & MUSIC
DEMO WITH DAMIAN WOETZEL
Sun and Mon, Sept 21 and 22, 7:30 pm
Damian Woetzel’s new NYC-based
DEMO series will bring together
artists from different genres
exploring a common theme. This
DEMO preview features a cast of
dancers including Carla Korbes
(Sept 21 only), Tiler Peck, Fang-Yi
Sheu, Lil Buck, Herman Cornejo,
and Robert Fairchild and musicians
including flutist Claire Chase, tabla player Sandeep Das, violinist
Johnny Gandelsman, and Galician bagpiper Cristina Pato.

THE KENNEDY CENTER
LITTLE DANCER WITH SUSAN STROMAN
Sun, Oct 5, 7:30 pm
Inspired by the obscure ballerina who
posed for the famed Edgar Degas
sculpture Little Dancer Aged Fourteen
(1879–81), this new musical follows the
young dancer Marie Van Goethem as
she struggles in the Paris Opera Ballet
and inadvertently becomes the world’s
most recognized dancer. Excerpts
will be performed by four-time Tony
Award–winner Boyd Gaines, three-time Tony Award–nominee
Rebecca Luker, and New York City Ballet principal dancer Tiler
Peck. Director and choreographer Susan Stroman will participate
in a moderated discussion with Lynn Ahrens (book and lyrics) and
Stephen Flaherty (music).
Arrive early and stay late to view Degas’ Dancers in Green and Yellow
(Danseuses vertes et jauntes), from the Guggenheim’s permanent collection,
from 6:30–7:30 pm and 8:45–9:30 pm in the Thannhauser Gallery.

JEROME ROBBINS
FANCY FREE TO ON THE TOWN
Sun and Mon, Nov 9 and 10, 7:30 pm
In 1944, Leonard Bernstein
and Jerome Robbins
created the ballet Fancy
Free and with Betty
Comden and Adolph
Green transformed it into
the musical On The Town.
See excerpts from Fancy Free, a performance of “New York, New
York” from the original On The Town staged by Robert LaFosse
and excerpts of the fall 2014 revival of On The Town by Tony
Award–winning director John Rando and Emmy Award–winning
choreographer Joshua Bergasse. Robbins biographer Amanda
Vaill moderates the discussion with LaFosse, Bergasse, Rando,
actress Phyllis Newman, and writer/narrator Jamie Bernstein,
daughter of Leonard Bernstein.
