Works & Process presents American Ballet Theatre: The Art of Storytelling with Susan Jaffe on Sunday, October 8, 2023 at 3:00 pm & 7:30 pm at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum as part of the Works & Process Fall 2023 Season.
Newly appointed Artistic Director Susan Jaffe leads a program illuminating how the art of storytelling is at the heart of American Ballet Theatre. Members of ABT’s artistic team participate in a discussion moderated by dance writer/educator/historian Wendy Perron with dancers performing highlights of full-length classics and iconic one-act story ballets.
As part of the Fall 2023 Works & Process season, new artistic directors from American Ballet Theatre – Susan Jaffe (October 8), Dance Theatre of Harlem – Robert Garland (October 29 and 30), and San Francisco Ballet – Tamara Rojo (October 15) will be given a platform to share their visions
Championing creative process from studio to stage, Works & Process amplifies support for performing artists and their artistic process, and simultaneously provides the public with behind-the-scenes access to new works, fostering greater understanding and appreciation. For an organization without walls like Works & Process, collaborations and partnerships are key to success, and they are proud that the fall 2023 season will be their largest fall ever. In a philosophy akin to farm to table, Works & Process LaunchPAD offers artists fully-funded creative residencies with 13 partners in 8 counties in New York and Massachusetts. This fall, Works & Process will also present programming at the Guggenheim Museum and the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, in partnership with the Jerome Robbins Dance Division, and seven Works & Process commissions created in Works & Process bubble and LaunchPAD residencies will tour to six states and the District of Columbia.
