And what a wonderful way to support the dance community. Obviously, all of their performance fees are gone, but also so many work in restaurants or as yoga instructors and those gigs are on hold as well. I was just thinking about how I didn’t know where my next dollar was going to come from and you answered that!
I’d love to donate my fee to a dancer who cannot legally file for unemployment and is stuck in New York.
I’m so happy to hear that you’ve reached out to so many artists in my web of collaborators — I’m, of course, experiencing personal hardship, but I’m much more broken up about the hardship that my collaborators are experiencing. Thanks for what you do.
As soon as I read your email my head started going on ideas and I started experimenting. Thanks for reaching out and triggering my brain to experiment at home during this time!

Works & Process at the Guggenheim
Described by The New York Times as “an exceptional opportunity to understand something of the creative process,” for 35 years, New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world, in an intimate setting unlike any other. Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, has championed new works and offered audiences unprecedented access to generations of leading creators and performers. Most performances take place in the Guggenheim’s intimate Frank Lloyd Wright-designed 273-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. In 2017, Works & Process established a new residency and commissioning program, inviting artists to create new works, made in and for the iconic Guggenheim rotunda. worksandprocess.org.Buy tickets/get more info now
