Tony and Olivier Award-winning choreographer Garth Fagan and Grammy Award-winning musician, composer, and bandleader Wynton Marsalis return to BAM with the world premiere of 'Lighthouse/Lightning Rod.' Performed by the internationally acclaimed Garth Fagan Dance, set to an original score by Wynton Marsalis (played live by the Wynton Marsalis Septet), and featuring scenic design by visual artist and Guggenheim fellow Alison Saar, 'Lighthouse/Lightning Rod' juxtaposes illusory feelings of security and danger while portraying relationships of depth, conflict, integrity, and hope. The evening will also include excerpts from 'Griot New York.' With sets by renowned sculptor Martin Puryear, this celebrated work depicts different eras in the city's history, showcasing Fagan's remarkable choreographic eclecticism and Marsalis' haunting jazz score.
