“Commissioned by Works & Process and created by American Ballet Theatre (ABT) Principal Dancer Daniil Simkin, Falls the Shadow is a new production featuring Simkin, ABT soloist Cassandra Trenary, Ana Lopez from Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and dancer Brett Conway; choreography by Alejandro Cerrudo; projection design by Dmitrij Simkin; and costume design by Dior. The performers’ movements will be captured by motion sensors, generating 3-D mapped visuals that will be projected onto the rotunda to create an immersive experience that merges technology, music, visual art, fashion, and dance. This 30-minute performance will be viewed from the ramps and requires audience members to stand for the duration of the program.” — Guggenheim Museum
