Works & Process Rotunda Project: Dance Theatre of Harlem at 50

September 30, 2019, 6:30–7:30 pm and 8:30–9:30 pm 

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

Founded in 1969, the Dance Theatre of Harlem made its 1971 official New York debut in the rotunda with a performance that included founder Arthur Mitchell’s Tones. To celebrate the Guggenheim building’s 60th and Dance Theatre of Harlem’s 50th anniversaries, Works & Process will present a Rotunda Project with the Dance Theatre of Harlem. The company will pay tribute to its history performing a restaging of Tones, with 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 6 pm for the 6:30 pm performance and at 8 pm for the 8:30 pm performance.

There will be no preperformance cocktail hour at The Wright or postperformance artist reception in the rotunda following the performances.

Leadership support for this Works & Process program provided by the Ford Foundation, Stavros Niarchos Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
