MetLiveArts: The Museum Workout (World Premiere)
The Met Fifth Avenue (8:30 am)
Conceived and choreographed by Monica Bill Barnes & Company Narration and route by Maira Kalman
An entirely original and moving new work commissioned by MetLiveArts, The Museum Workout is the result of a collaboration between today’s most clever and daring artists and innovators, the contemporary American dance company Monica Bill Barnes & Company, and writer/illustrator Maira Kalman. For this multi-disciplinary work, a small group of audience-participants embark on a physical and interactive journey through The Met in the morning hours, before it opens to the public. Through constant movement, exercises, and light stretching, led by choreographer Monica Bill Barnes and dance partner Anna Bass (wearing sequined dresses and tennis shoes), participants experience an awakening to their surroundings unlike any other Museum tour. Connecting with the art and the overwhelming power of the galleries by activating one’s own body and mind makes this new work so radical. Kalman selects the art work visited along the tour and the Workout soundtrack mixes her recorded voice with Disco and Motown hits.
Tickets start at $35. [Please note: These events are sold out.]
