This weekend at the Music Center, choreographer Wayne McGregor, composer and conductor ThomasAdès, artist Tacita Dean, the Royal Ballet, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic present two world premieres, preceded by a work—OUTLIER—new to West Coast audiences.
LIVING ARCHIVE: AN AI PERFORMANCE EXPERIMENT—danced by Company Wayne McGregor—is a first look at the results of McGregor’s collaboration with Google’s Arts and Culture Lab to develop a choreographic tool that generates new outcomes for works in McGregor’s repertoire. This iteration of LIVING ARCHIVE will be danced to Adès’ In Seven Days, performed by the LAPhil.
The evening will close with the dance world premiere of Part One of McGregor’s full-evening work THE DANTE PROJECT. Set to Adès’ new eponymous composition, INFERNO will be performed by the Royal Ballet, and features a set designed by Tacita Dean—her first work for dancers and the stage—and lighting design by Lucy Carter and SimonBennison.
This week at the Hammer Museum, CalArts dance professor Ariel Osterweis will moderate a conversation between Tacita Dean and choreographer Wayne McGregor, collaborators on the upcoming world premiere of THE DANTE PROJECT (INFERNO)—the closing dance of the Adès &McGregor—A Dance Collaboration presentation in Los Angeles.
