Works & Process, the Performing Arts Series at the Guggenheim 2012 Fall Season

 

Select Performances to Be Live Streamed

 

(NEW YORK, NY – August 13, 2012)

Works & Process at the Guggenheim is pleased to announce its 2012 fall season. Since 1984, the performing arts series has championed new works, offered audiences unprecedented access to leading creators and performers, and hosted receptions for the audiences and artists. Each intimate, 80-minute performance uniquely combines artistic creation and stimulating conversation and takes place in the Guggenheim’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed, 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. A reception for the audience and artists follows most programs. Described by the New York Times as “a popular series devoted to shedding light on the creative process,” Works & Process is produced by founder Mary Sharp Cronson. Past performance highlights can be viewed at youtube.com/worksandprocess.

 

Lead funding provided by The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation with additional support from The Christian Humann Foundation, Leon Levy Foundation, and Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Inc. This program is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Thanks so for this, John. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the educational programmes by the RB and RO in, say, the Clore could be streamed in a similar fashion so that they could reach many more peopie and share the education with many more that could not afford it. One remembers that the British companies receive many times more funding than do their American counterparts.

Don't the ROH put pretty large chunks of their insight programmes online these days?

 

Hello, now voyager. Nice to see you in here again.

Do they Alison? ... How wonderful. Could you give us a link to this stream ... It would mean so much .... to, say, the 'In Conversation with' programmes? Please forgive my own personal ignorance in this regard. This is wonderful news; TRULY WONDERFUL. It so reverses much of what many of have said about these prorgammes in the past. Thanks so much for your support and keen knowledge.

Well, some of the In Conversations are certainly on iTunes University, or on the ROH website (or used to be, not sure if they're on the new one). I don't really pay much attention to this, so am probably not the best person to advise.

Hi Alison - Thanks so much - I found the iTunes University with the recordings - I did not know about them before. I have been listening all afternoon while working .... Laura Morera could have a second career as a stand-up - she's truly hilarious ...Thanks again ...
