NYCB ART SERIES

AN UNEXPECTED WAY TO EXPERIENCE A NIGHT AT THE BALLET




Following the highly acclaimed installations by FAILE, JR, and Dustin Yellin, New York City Ballet welcomed Winnipeg native and Brooklyn based interdisciplinary artist Marcel Dzama for the 2016 Art Series.

Dzama exhibited Art Series’ first ever digital installation on the theater’s Promenade, complete with a chess match dance off and an incognito appearance by Amy Sedaris.

The Art Series installation was on view at three special New York City Ballet Art Series performances on February 6 Eve, 11, and 19 where all tickets were priced at $30. Each audience member received a limited edition commemorative takeaway from the artist.



In addition, Dzama was also part of the creative team for The Most Incredible Thing, NYCB Resident Choreographer Justin Peck’s world premiere ballet, which was performed as part of each Art Series program. Dzama’s costume and set designs were joined by Peck’s choreography and original music by Bryce Dessner of The National, bringing Hans Christian Anderson’s dark fairytale of the same name to the stage.
