"Anachorisi (Departure)" by Silas Farley

Commissioned by Works & Process at the Guggenheim.

Presented by First Republic. Co-presented by Grace Farms.

"This choreography is a set of three variations and a trio that I made for myself, my wife, and her sister. The steps flow from the music, which is the first movement of 'Cyclades' for solo guitar by Kyle Werner. Through it, I hope that each of you will be refreshed and experience some of the joy that my family and I had in making this dance as we quarantined together."

Works & Process Artists (WPA) Virtual Commissions, a direct response to the pandemic, was launched in April to financially support artists and nurture their creative process during these challenging times. Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, is granting more than $150,000 in commissioning funds to artists who have been or were supposed to be featured at Works & Process. Artists from a wide variety of genres have been commissioned to create new works, less than 5 minutes long, while social distancing, that will premiere on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube (@worksandprocess) every Sunday and Monday at 7:30pm and can be viewed anytime after.
