Works & Process will present a Dorrance Dance Rotunda Project Revival with two free special demonstrations and a performance for middle and high school students on November 1, 2018.
The work, a site-specific commission made in and for the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda of the Guggenheim which the New York Times hailed as a "revelatory dance experience," features percussive dance and transforms the iconic space into a giant musical instrument. After its premiere in 2017, Dance Magazine called the work "genius... funny yet breathtaking, endlessly entertaining but compositionally brilliant," and the work was selected as a Best of Dance by the New York Times for 2017. The piece is 40 minutes long, highly engaging, and immersive, making use of the architecture and acoustics of the rotunda through cross-genre percussive movement.
