Custodians of Beauty

Can anything still strike today’s spectator facing modern disenchantment as beautiful? Choreographer/director Pavel Zuštiak—“a striking performer” (The New York Times) with a knack for creating work that shines with a “vivid, often anguished imagination” (The New Yorker)—asks this and other questions in Custodians of Beauty. A 50 & Change Commission for Live Arts’ 2015-16 season, Zuštiak’s new work merges dance, live music and visual arts.

Custodians of Beauty promises to build on Zuštiak’s continued theatrical and movement investigation while examining the multiplicity of concepts of beauty and its permanence within art. From Plato, via Pope Benedict XVI to Susan Sontag, the work draws from a fascinating range of contextual sources while invoking beauty that can shock and transform us. The work continues Zuštiak’s acclaimed working relationship with composer/musician Christian Frederickson and lighting designer Joe Levasseur.
