Harkness Presents INFRASTRUCTURE (OF A WORK): WAITING

Sidra Bell Dance New York and acclaimed saxophonist, composer and arranger Immanuel Wilkins premiere waiting-a new work-in-progress-on Friday, December 4. The streaming performance is followed by a live panel discussion and Q&A with Sidra Bell and Immanuel Wilkins.

Sidra and Immanuel met in June 2019 when he attended a Sidra Bell Dance New York performance and approached Sidra about working together. The work, waiting, was scheduled for a world premiere performance at National Sawdust in June 2020, but was cancelled due to the pandemic. Work on the project continued in the fall with Sidra and the company collaborating on Zoom and waiting now premieres online as a work-in-progress at 92Y.

SBDNY artists: Marisa Christogeorge, AJ Libert, Kimie Parker, Sophia Halimah Parker and Uma Shannon.
