fresh, unaffected, contemporary” – The New York Times

Enjoy new choreographies by BalletCollective, a non-profit arts collective based in New York, fruit of a collaborative process involving dancers, choreographers, and composers, presented by Works & Process at the Guggenheim.

Works & Process has been possible thanks to the Ford Foundation through the Institute of International Education’s Global Travel and Learning Fund (GTLF).

Choreographed by Troy Schumacher
Commissioned scores by Julianna Barwick, Ellis Ludwig-Leone, and Mark Dancigers
Conceptual artistic collaborations with science fiction writer Ken Liu, poet Cynthia Zarin, and photographers Dafy Hagai and Paul Maffi
Performed by members of New York City Ballet

“The collaborative process is everything to us.  It pushes us to consider different artistic methods, to bend and stretch our notions of traditional ballet and the world around us,” said BalletCollective founder Troy Schumacher. “For this program, I assembled a group of my favorite BalletCollective works that deal with various perspectives of human connection.  Vastly different yet equally poignant, the works inspired new combinations of movement and musical in way that we hope expands the language of ballet and resonates with a wide audience.”
