VIDEO: Works & Process Rotunda Project: Daniil Simkin: Falls the Shadow

Article Pixel

In September 2017, Works & Process presented "Falls the Shadow," a site-specific work made in and for the Guggenheim rotunda. Created by American Ballet Theatre principal Daniil Simkin, the work featured performances by Simkin, ABT soloist Cassandra Trenary, Hubbard Street dancers Ana Lopez and Brett Conway; choreography by Alejandro Cerrudo; projections by Dmitrij Simkin; interactive media by Arístides Job García Hernández; and costumes by Dior.

Motion sensors captured the performers' movements in real time and generated 3-D mapped visuals projected onto the surface of the rotunda to create an immersive experience that merged technology, music, visual art, fashion, and dance.
