In conjunction with Joseph's project moving and passing, part of the Guggenheim Social Practice initiative, highlights from /peh-LO-tah/ will be performed prior to opening at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Directed by Michael John Garcés, choreographed by Stacey Printz, and with music by Tommy Shepard, the work is a "futbol-framed freedom suite" inspired by Joseph's first-generation American experience, and it explores the intersection of global economics, cross border fan culture, and the politics of joy. Marc Bamuthi Joseph will discuss the work with moderator Calen Carr.

Guggenheim Social Practice
A new initiative committed to exploring the ways in which artists can initiate projects that engage community participants, together with the museum, to foster new forms of public engagement. As part of the initiative, the museum has commissioned two separate artist projects, one by Marc Bamuthi Joseph and one by Jon Rubin and Lenka Clayton, which were developed and presented in New York City in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
Works & Process at the Guggenheim
Described byThe New York Times as "an exceptional opportunity to understand something of the creative process," for over 33 years and in over 500 productions, New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world, in an intimate setting unlike any other. Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, has championed new works and offered audiences unprecedented access to generations of leading creators and performers. Most performances take place in the Guggenheim's intimate Frank Lloyd Wright-designed 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. In 2017, Works & Process established a new residencyand commissioning program, inviting artists to createnew works, made in and for the iconic Guggenheimrotunda.worksandprocess.org.
