"Breaking Bread with Balanchine"
Sunday and Monday, April 8 and 9, 2018 at 7:30pm
Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents "Breaking Bread with Balanchine"on Sunday and Monday, April 8 and 9, 2018 at 7:30pm.
George Balanchine, the legendary choreographer, was also a great cook. Food scholar Meryl Rosofsky will present a brief "culinary biography" of Balanchine, exploring how his relationship to food illuminates the cultural, geographic, and political forces that shaped him as an artist.
Joining her for a panel discussion following her slide talk will be special guests who danced or dined with Balanchine, including famed former New York City Ballet (NYCB) principal dancer Edward Villella; Dr. Jeanne Fuchs, who tested Balanchine's recipes for The Ballet Cook Book by Tanaquil Le Clercq; and NYCB's longtime orthopedic consultant Dr. William Hamilton, who attended Balanchine's famous Russian Orthodox Easter celebrations. Throughout the evening, NYBC dancers Jared Angle, Adrian Danchig-Waring, Joseph Gordon, Ashley Laracey, and Miriam Miller will perform short excerpts from Balanchine's ballets Apollo, Prodigal Son, and the Emeralds section of Jewels.
