According to Brooklyn Vegan, a new performance piece called Unveiling, which features music by singer-songwriter Moses Sumney, will be premiering at The Guggenheim and Lincoln Center Restart Stages on June 1. The piece was choreographed by Sonya Tayeh and features the dancers Lia Cirio, Robbie Fairchild, Lorenzo Pagano, Ida Saki, Gabe Stone Shayer and Cassandra Trenary.
There will be three performances on June 1, including two shows at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. at The Guggenheim, and a matinee at 2 PM at Lincoln Center Restart Stages.
The description states, “Unveiling, by Tony- and Emmy-nominated choreographer Sonya Hashem Tayeh, navigates the search within oneself to shed, peeling off the layers one by one until there is a depth of rawness, and from within that rawness we seek anew. The exquisite sound of Moses Sumney leads the way and guides us on our journey. This Works & Process commission was developed in a bubble residency at Catskill Mountain Foundation.”

In December of 2020, Sumney collaborated with the Swedish electronic band Little Dragon on the single “The Other Lover.” The synthy song featured a duet by Sumney and Little Dragon’s frontwoman Yukimi Nagano.
