Mark your calendars, set your alarms on your phones.  This Sunday night, January 9th at 7:30pm, Works and Process at the Guggenheim Museum will be live streaming one of their shows for the first time!  You can catch the show and online discussion live on DIYdancer and The Winger!

The show, Pacific Northwest–Ballet Giselle Revisited, will preview excerpts of Peter Boal’s new staging of Giselle, featuring reconstructed choreography utilizing Stepanov notation circa 1899-1903 and French sources from the 1840s and 1860s.  There will be discussion among dance scholars Doug Fullington and Marian Smith and artistic director Peter Boal as well as  performances by PNB dancers Carrie Imler, Carla Körbes, James Moore, and Seth Orza.

Not only am I looking forward to being enlightened by all of this history and retelling of my favorite classical ballet, I can’t wait to moderate the live chat accompanying the streaming!  The show is sold out but you can be a part of it by coming back to this site at the above date and time, enjoy the show and be a part of the discussion online!

In all ways, this is going to an historic event, so don’t miss out!
