Performance Art@Google: New York City Ballet

Adrian Danchig-Waring and Amanda Hankes, two dancers with the NYCB, stopped by Google NYC to discuss their upcoming performance, Dancers’ Choice. The Discussion is moderated by Meghan Kent and hosted by Lee Stimmel. New York City Ballet will present its third Dancers’ Choice program on Sunday, June 12 at 7:30 PM. A benefit for NYCB’s Dancers’ Emergency Fund, the event was conceived by NYCB’s Ballet Master in Chief Peter Martins in 2008 to give the Company’s dancers an opportunity to plan an NYCB performance. This year Soloist Adrian Danchig-Waring and Corps de Ballet member Amanda Hankes will oversee the evening’s programming and casting, as well as the marketing and promotional efforts. The framework for this year’s programming will be the role of the “muse” in art. The evening will specifically explore the theme of woman as muse- a sentiment echoed in Balanchine’s famous quote “Ballet is Woman”- as well as demonstrate the theme of Stravinsky as muse- a nod towards Balanchine’s frequent collaborator. These themes will be showcased during the evening’s performance in a series of pas de deux selections from George Balanchine’s Agon and Rubies from Jewels, Angelin Preljocaj’s La Stravaganza, and the only performance this season of Christopher Wheeldon’s Liturgy. The evening will also include George Balanchine’s iconic work Apollo, as well as exciting debut performances in nearly every role. As in previous years, the evening will also showcase the dancers’ off stage talents
