Presented in conjunction with New York City Ballet's engagement, Brooklyn-based artist Dustin Yellin's 2015 New York City Ballet Art Series Installation features 12 large-scale glass and mixed-media sculptures each weighing more than 3,000 pounds. Taking inspiration from the New York City Ballet dancers, Yellin calls the sculptures Psychogeographies, as they feel like maps of the psyche. The sculptures will be on display in the Hall of States April 1–26.
In honor of Memorial Day, May 21 & 22 the Kennedy Center presents Andrew Carroll's compelling drama about the American wartime experience, taken from actual letters penned by troops and their loved ones. The cast features Mamie Gummer, Gary Cole, and others. All net ticket proceeds will support the Kennedy Center Education Fund.
The Kennedy Center's 2015-2016 season includes new artist-curated series, Broadway's best theater, world-class ballet and dance companies, rising jazz stars and legends, classical and chamber music, opera, performances for young audiences, and more.
