Dia Art Foundation Presents François Chaignaud and Cecilia Bengolea at Dia:Beacon

Continuing Dia Art Foundation's long-term commitment to supporting performance, Dia has commissioned Paris-based choreographers François Chaignaud and Cecilia Bengolea to develop a multipart program for Dia:Beacon. Over two weekends in May 2017, the program will trace the trajectory of the artists' twelve-year creative partnership. Each performance will include three consecutive episodes, transitioning through the layered references that inform their collaborative work—from the musical structures of polyphonic singing, through the transcendent dance of Sylphides (2009), to the recent ensemble work Dub Love (2014).
