Spaces - Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis

April 1, 2016
Rose Theater – New York

In Spaces, Wynton Marsalis’ new dance suite for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, each movement corresponds to a different animal — a chicken, a lion, a frog and more.
He enlisted tap dancer Jared Grimes and “jooker” (street dancer) Lil Buck to embody the animals in their performances. In this piece, Marsalis also describes his fascination with the animal kingdom, his process of writing, and the way he attempts to draw on the spaces that all creatures inhabit.
