HEATSCAPE LIVESTREAM PREVIEW
Watch the Works & Process at the Guggenheim livestream for HEATSCAPE on Sun, Jan 18, 7:30pm EST at guggenheim.org/live.
On Jan 18 and 19, 2015, Works & Process at the Guggenheim will present MIAMI CITY BALLET: JUSTIN PECK & SHEPARD FAIREY. Choreographer Justin Peck along with Miami City Ballet dancers and Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez, and street artist Shepard Fairey will participate in Works & Process at the Guggenheim leading up to the Company’s March 27th world premiere of Heatscape. Moderated by Ellen Bar (New York City Ballet, Ballet 422), Peck, Fairey (Jan 18 only), and Lopez will discuss the creative process and company dancers including principals Tricia Albertson, Renan Cardeiro, Patricia Delgado, Kleber Rebello and corps member Shimon Ito will perform excerpts from Heatscape, in a one of a kind, behind-the-scenes look at the highly anticipated world premiere.
Heatscape is Justin Peck’s newest work for Miami City Ballet (MCB), premiering during the Company’s Florida season of programming on March 27, 2015. Commissioned by MCB artistic director Lourdes Lopez, the new work will feature original art design by Shepard Fairey. The unlikely collaboration came about while Peck was in Miami to stage Chutes and Ladders for the 2013/14 season. At the suggestion of Lopez, Peck took in the colorful street art in the burgeoning arts district of Wynwood, Miami. He was particularly drawn to Shepard’s murals on display at Wynwood Walls. Inspired, he contacted Fairey, who agreed to create an original art backdrop for the piece. Heatscape is 35-minutes long, has a cast of 17 and is set to Bohuslav Martinů’s imaginative Piano Concerto No. 1. Noted design team Reid Bartelme and Harriet Jung will create original costumes for the work.
