Short Description


Amidst the pandemic, Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, produced performing arts creative bubbles for artists to work safely together again. "Isolation To Creation" takes you behind the scenes as artists return to the studio and stage for the first time since the pandemic.


​Spanning multiple traditions and styles—from Afrik, ballroom, body percussion, club-life, street, and tap dance to beatbox, vogue, and underground house dance and music—these performances lift underrepresented voices, performing arts cultures, and producers. While few were able to safely gather in person, these programs provided a glimpse of a potent future in which stewardship is channeled toward artist-driven projects, shaping a more inclusive and representative world.




Lead support for Works & Process Bubble Residencies and Isolation to Creation provided by Works & Process Board of Directors and Anh-Tuyet Nguyen and Robert Pollock, with additional support from Jonna Mackin.


Filming assistance provided by the Jerome Robbins Dance Division at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.
