Falls the Shadow Dance Performance

credits DiMiX

Daniil Simkin’s “Falls the Shadow” is a commissioned performance for the Guggenheim’s Works and Process series.

Four 30-minute performances took place at the Guggenheim Museum NYC on September 4 and 5, with standing audience members observing the show from different levels of the venue, which is known for its continuous ramp that spirals up the rotunda structure and connects to all of the floors.

The work combines dance with live video projections in a collection of six pieces choreographed by Alejandro Cerrudo, with costumes by Maria Grazia Chiuri /Christian Dior.
Daniil Simkin, a principal dancer with the American Ballet Theater (ABT), is also coproducer and performer in the piece, along with ABT soloist Cassandra Trenary, Ana Lopez from Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and dancer Brett Conway.

Projection design by Arístides García and Dmitrij Simkin.
Additional shader programing, Alexander Shaliapin.

joreg: i'm not exactly sure what "old problem" you're talking about. have you tested if it still exists?

Xini: tx @joreg . Do you think it's better for me to install a 32bit version of vvvv, or is there another workaround for that old problem?
