A NEW COMMISSION BY PARK AVENUE ARMORY
WORK-IN PROGRESS AT MASS MoCA CO-PRESENTED WITH JACOB’S PILLOW
Deep Blue Sea, which will have its world premiere at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City, is a culmination of years of work by the iconic choreographer Bill T. Jones. This work-in-progress performance follows an artist residency that will transform MASS MoCA’s largest venue; the Hunter Center will be stretched to the very limits of its physical capacity. The work, a meditation on the nature of finding community in this confusing era of ours, will eventually incorporate a cast of 100.
