The Living Room Series

Bringing our performances to you at home

While many of us are working from home and practicing social distancing, we want you to know that NYTB/ChamberWorks is here for you. We will be providing you with performances you can view from the safety of your living room, in the hopes that during this strange time we can offer a small escape full of music, poetry, and beauty.

A new "evening performance" will be sent out and posted here every Friday during this stay at home period.

The Living Room Series in The New Yorker:
The company formerly known as New York Theatre Ballet is one of the few places you can see the work of the twentieth-century British choreographer Antony Tudor these days. Rigorous and taut, these ballets are all the more intense for the contained manner in which they are performed. The company has put several of them online, including “Dark Elegies” and “Jardin aux Lilas,” both from the nineteen-thirties. “Dark Elegies” is an exposition of communal grief—a timely theme—set to Mahler’s song cycle “Kindertotenlieder.” In “Jardin aux Lilas,” four people are caught in a quadrangle of impossible love during a rather gloomy afternoon garden party. The dancers of this New York-based chamber company perform the works—which can be viewed on Vimeo—with bracing sincerity. --Marina Harss
