Four New Interdisciplinary Works at 92Y
June 10-12, 2016

Tickets are $25 and are available at http://www.92y.org/Event/Satellite-Collective, by phone at 212.415.5500, or in person at the 92Y box office. Tickets are on sale now.

In their new season, Satellite Collective seeks to secure their place as a leading voice of interdisciplinary art in New York City. Satellite Collective presents a vibrant program of young and emerging artists from the New York City Ballet, Alvin Ailey, Juilliard and the indie music and video scenes. The artists of this interdisciplinary, bright new paradigm have honed their collaborative method with art created specifically for the historical space at 92Y in four fresh works of contemporary ballet, dance, short film and live original music in their dynamic, collaborative style, to premiere as part of 92Y's Dig Dance: Weekend Series. Satellite Collective's new season features the premieres of postclassical music by two composers, ballet and modern dance works by two choreographers, a new short film featuring two ballerinas, and a spoken work with two poets.

"These are people who know how to produce a show."
- The New York Times, 2014

"An admirably cooperative endeavor and a peculiar one."
-The New York Times, 2015

Satellite Collective Programming:

A full-length duet by young choreographer Marcus Willis of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, with an original score by Aaron Severini, former NYCB corps de ballet, and visual design by Kevin Draper.

A full-length dance work for two by young choreographer Devin Alberda of the New York City Ballet, with original score and digital looping by Richie Greene, featuring Taylor Stanley.
