announces the World Premiere of
Works & Process Rotunda Project: Daniil Simkin
Falls the Shadow with choreography by Alejandro Cerrudo
With Costumes Designed by Dior

September 4 & 5, 2017 at 8pm and 9:30pm

Spearheaded by American Ballet Theatre principal Daniil Simkin with new choreography by Alejandro Cerrudo, projection design by Dmitrij Simkin and costumes by Dior, Falls the Shadow is a new 30-minute work made in and for the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum rotunda.  It will feature dancers Daniil Simkin, ABT soloist Cassandra Trenary and Hubbard Street dancers Andrew Murdock and Ana Lopez.
In "real-time," their movements will be captured by motion sensors, generating 3-D mapped visuals that will be projected onto the surface of the rotunda to create an immersive experience that meshes technology, music, visuals, fashion, and dance.
In 2017, Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, launched a new initiative, commissioning site-specific residencies and performances for the iconic Guggenheim Museum rotunda. Falls the Shadow will be the second Works & Process Rotunda Project and will be the culmination of rotunda residencies spanning five-weeks.
This 30-minute performance will be viewed from the ramps and requires audience members to stand for the duration of the program. Limited seating with diminished views available on the rotunda floor.
WorldStage is the technology partner for Falls the Shadow.
