Choreographer Pam Tanowitz talks with the Library’s dance archivist Libby Smigel about her Bartók Ballet, a marriage of post-modern dance vocabulary and one of the Library's best-known commissions. Created for the New York City Ballet, the work features eleven dancers and a live, onstage performance of Bartók's complete String Quartet no. 5. Providing a performer's perspective, a dancer from the spring 2019 NYCB premiere will join the conversation.
