Following the highly acclaimed installations by FAILE, JR, and Dustin Yellin, New York City Ballet collaborates for the 2016 Art Series with Winnipeg native and Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist Marcel Dzama.
Dzama will exhibit Art Series’ first ever digital installation this winter on the theater’s Promenade, complete with a chess match dance off and a guest appearance by Amy Sedaris.
His collaboration with NYCB also extends to the stage with his costume and set designs forThe Most Incredible Thing, a world premiere ballet based on the dark fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen with music by Bryce Dessner of The National and choreography by NYCB Resident Choreographer Justin Peck.
Dzama’s work will be on view at three special New York City Ballet Art Series performances at Lincoln Center on the evening of February 6, and during a matinee and evening performance on February 11 and 19, where all tickets are priced at $30, and each audience member will receive a limited edition commemorative takeaway from the artist.
