The Guggenheim people have decided to live stream another of their Works and Process programs, since it's sold out -- here are the details:

Works & Process, the performing arts program at the Guggenheim, to livestream John Zornís Music Interpeted Ė New Choreography by Donald Byrd and Pam Tanowitz on February 27 and 28, 2011, 7:30pm.

For over 25 years and in over 300 productions, Works & Process has offered audiences unprecedented access to our generationís leading creators and performers. Each 80-minute performance uniquely combines artistic creation and stimulating conversation and takes place in the Guggenheimís intimate Frank Lloyd Wright-designed 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. With performances often sold out, Works & Process on Sunday and Monday, February 27 and 28, 2011 at 7:30 pm, will livestream the sold out performances of John Zornís Music Interpreted Ė New Choreography by Donald Byrd and Pam Tanowitz. In this program choreographers Donald Byrd and Pam Tanowitz each create new works, commissioned by Works & Process, set to the music of composer John Zorn. Byrd, known for his beautiful yet volatile work, will choreograph a piece with his Seattle-based company Spectrum Dance Theater set to Zorn's cid:image001.gif@01CBC164.804113B0 played by pianist Stephen Drury. Tanowitz, known for her unflinchingly postmodern treatment of classical dance, sets a work to Zornís Femina, written as a tribute to the rich legacy of women in the arts. Working with seasoned dancers, including Ashley Tuttle, Tanowitz draws from the sensuality, spontaneity, and fantastical imagination of the Romantic ballets for this new work. The performance will be interspersed with discussion by Byrd, Tanowitz, and Zorn, moderated by composer Charles Wuorinen.

The Wingerís Candice Thompson will moderate the real-time online chat on February 28. The video will be automatically archived and can be shared and viewed in social networks.

This past January 9, 2011 Works & Process livestreamed a program for the first time, the program featuring Pacific Northwest Ballet generated 728 unique live online viewers and subsequently the program has been viewed over 1,300 times. The livestreaming of sold-out performances allows audiences the chance to see a sold-out performance they otherwise would not have access to and enables artists to reach a broader audience.
