Fusing Brazilian music and rhythms with body percussion and tap traditions, Lincoln Center Education artists and Works & Process alums, dancer-musician Leonardo Sandoval and bassist-composer Gregory Richardson and their company Music from the Sole including dancer Gisele Silva, pianists Noé Kains, and José Cruzata, were commissioned as part of their summer 2020 Works & Process bubble residency to create new works for both the Guggenheim and Lincoln Center. These new works feature choreographic and musical influences from Sandoval’s native Brazil, and Richardson’s talent-combining funk, house, jazz, and Afro-Cuban music. Performed and filmed at Hearst Plaza on the very last day of their bubble residency and during the pandemic, this performance serves as a beacon of hope for the safe gathering of artists and the return of the performing arts to Lincoln Center.
The work will premiere digitally on Sunday, November 8 at 7:30 pm ET on this page and Lincoln Center’s Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube as well as on Works & Process at the Guggenheim’s Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

The works are co-produced by Works and Process at the Guggenheim and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and filmed by Nic Petry at Dancing Camera.
