After the huge successes of working three consecutive years with Street Artists Faile and JR and sculptor Dustin Yellin, the NYC Ballet is commissioning a large-scale multidisciplinary installation from Brooklyn-based visual artist Marcel Dzama – and he’s designing costumes as well.
Dzama’s in the permanent collections of MOMA, The Guggenheim, and the Tate, and has contributed his art to albums and videos by Beck, Bob Dylan, Department of Eagles, and They Might Be Giants, so it’s no surprise that his dark witty world across multiple mediums and media is now embracing the ballet full force, and even though tickets don’t go on sale until Monday, BSA readers can get the very affordable $30 tickets PRE-SALE at midnight tonight!
You know what a blast we all had the last 3 years at the NYC Ballet – the performances, the art, the DJs, the refreshments, the dancers live in-person mingling in the great hall with everyone. Right? As with the other Art Series events, all ticket holders will also receive a limited-edition commemorative takeaway created by the artist himself.
Peck, Dzama, and “The National” in World Premier
THE MOST INCREDIBLE THING is the name of the new piece by NYCB resident choreographer Justin Peck, which will have its world premiere – along with 50+ costumes and scenic elements by Dzama inspired by Bauhaus artist Oskar Schlemmer. Outstandingly, its all backed by a score from Bryce Dessner, co-founder and guitarist from The National.
“There’s this kind of ‘4 AM in the morning’ feel to a lot of my work, I think. It’s nice to see it in action now. It’s really inspiring,” says Marcel Dzama as he reviews the costumes and performers rehearsing.
