Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents Works & Process Rotunda Project: Dance Theatre of Harlem at 50 on Monday, September 30, 2019 at 6:30pm & 8:30pm.
Founded in 1969, the Dance Theatre of Harlem made its 1971 official New York debut in the rotunda with a performance that included founder Arthur Mitchell's Tones. To celebrate the Guggenheim building's 60th and Dance Theatre of Harlem's 50th anniversaries, Works & Process will present a Rotunda Project with the Dance Theatre of Harlem. The company will pay tribute to its history with the TONES II, a restaging of Tones by former DTH principal ballerina Lorraine Graves with assistance from former principal ballerina Caroline Rocher, set to music by Tania León; the first three themes from choreographer George Balanchine's The Four Temperaments, with music by Paul Hindemith; and Dance Theatre of Harlem Resident Choreographer Robert Garland's Nyman String Quartet #2, with music by Michael Nyman.
