restaging of Tones by former DTH principal ballerina
Lorraine Graves with assistance from former principal ballerina
Caroline Rocher, set to music by Tania León;
the first three themes from choreographer George Balanchine's 
The
Four Temperaments,
 with music by
Paul Hindemith; and Dance Theatre of Harlem Resident Choreographer
Robert Garland's 
Nyman String
Quartet #2,
 with music by Michael
Nyman.

 

Doors
will open at 6pm for the 6:30pm performance and at 8pm for the 8:30pm

performs a forward-thinking repertoire that includes treasured
classics, neoclassical works by George Balanchine and resident
choreographer Robert Garland, as well as innovative contemporary
works that use the language of ballet to celebrate African American
culture. Through performances, community engagement and arts
education, the Company carries forward Dance Theatre of Harlem's
message of empowerment through the arts for all.

Works
& Process at the Guggenheim
 
Described
by 
The
New York Times
 as
"an exceptional opportunity to understand something of the
creative process," for 35 years, New Yorkers have been able to
see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world, in an
intimate setting unlike any other. Works & Process, the
performing arts series at the Guggenheim, has championed new works
and offered audiences unprecedented access to generations of leading
creators and performers. Most performances take place in the
Guggenheim's intimate Frank Lloyd Wright-designed 273-seat Peter B.
Lewis Theater. In 2017, Works & Process established a new
residency and commissioning program, inviting artists to create new
works, made in and for the iconic Guggenheim
rotunda. worksandprocess.org.
