Dance Theatre of Harlem

Works & Process at The Guggenheim

Don’t miss this first look at excerpts from Sounds of Hazel, choreographer Tiffany Rea-Fisher’s new ballet inspired by the life of virtuoso classical and jazz pianist, singer, and civil rights activist Hazel Scott. Learn more about Scott’s contributions to United States culture, in particular her journey to becoming the first U.S. woman to host her own TV show and her lifelong fight for social justice, including standing up to the Hollywood studio machine and bravely testifying before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Ahead of the project’s world premiere with Washington Performing Arts in fall 2022 and spring 2023 New York premiere at New York City Center, company dancers will perform highlights and Rea-Fisher will discuss her creative process.
