Internationally acclaimed Garth Fagan Dance and the Wynton Marsalis Septet will perform Griot New York at the Eastman Theatre on Saturday, September 6, at 7:30 p.m.

Griot New York made its world premiere in 1991 at the Next Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. A collaboration by three visionaries, concept and choreography by Garth Fagan, music composed and arranged by Wynton Marsalis, and set design by sculptor Martin Puryear, Griot New York explores contemporary urban life, human anguish and exaltation, and humankind’s triumph over adversity.
