Works & Process at Lincoln Center: "The Missing Element"
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
Fusing together awe-inspiring street dancers from Krump, FlexN, and Breaking communities with virtuosic music-making of the Beatbox House, The Missing Element, commissioned by Works & Process, returns to Lincoln Center for a live performance as a capstone of their digital film shot at Lincoln Center's Revson Fountain in August of 2020.
Commissioned in 2019 by Works & Process, amid the headwinds of the pandemic, The Missing Element was developed in Works & Process bubble residencies at Kaatsbaan Cultural Park in August 2020 and March 2021, made possible through the generous support of the Mellon Foundation and Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. Highlights from The Missing Element were performed throughout the pandemic at Little Island, Guggenheim Museum rotunda, Kaatsbaan Cultural Park, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and NY PopsUp in Astoria Park (with Amy Schumer), ahead of its long-awaited and fully produced world premiere in May 2022. Before all of this, the project started its life in renowned Brooklyn nightclub House of Yes.

Works & Process at Lincoln Center
Described by The New York Times as “an exceptional opportunity to understand something of the creative process,” Works & Process is where New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world. Focusing on studio-to-stage artistic process and longitudinal relationships with both artists and arts institutions, Works & Process provides artists iterative opportunities. Through our 10 residency partners that make up LaunchPAD “Process as Destination” and presentations at the Guggenheim Museum, Lincoln Center, and New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Jerome Robbins Dance Division, artists hone and develop their craft and audiences gain unprecedented access to leading creators and performers. The program champions new works, shapes representation, and amplifies underrepresented voices and performing arts cultures. Since 2020, Lincoln Center and Works & Process have partnered through virtual premieres and dynamic in-person performances. This fall, three new dance and music productions take the stage at the Clark Studio Theater—all offering Choose-What-You-Pay tickets.
