Mason Bates: Art of War | A Kennedy Center Digital Stage Original
"Art of War" is a powerful new symphony that explores the drama of human conflict from the perspectives of soldiers, weaponry, and human loss. Animating a three-movement symphonic structure are original field recordings of weapons tests; elements of American and Iraqi folk music; and the printing presses of the US Treasury. This new work by Kennedy Center Composer-in-Residence Mason Bates was performed by the National Symphony Orchestra and conducted by NSO Music Director Gianandrea Noseda. It premiered December, 2018, in the Kennedy Center's Concert Hall. Subscribe to The Kennedy Center! http://bit.ly/2gNFrtb

Dance Theatre of Harlem & Miami City Ballet: Pam Tanowitz's "Gustave Le Gray No. 1"
The Kennedy Center’s Ballet Across America is a program that explores the breadth and depth of American ballet. Occurring every few years, multiple American companies are invited to participate in a week-long celebration featuring performances from each company. In 2019, Ballet Across America was put together with the inspiration of women’s leadership in ballet and dance. To mark the celebration, the Center commissioned choreographer Pam Tanowitz to create a world premiere work for the week’s two participating companies, Dance Theatre of Harlem and Miami City Ballet; both are companies led by visionary women – Virginia Johnson at DTH and Lourdes Lopez in Miami. Tanowitz set the work on two dancers from each company, with a pianist on stage playing a solo work by the composer Caroline Shaw. The piece had its world premiere during Ballet Across America on May 31, 2019. This video captures the premiere performance.
