Griot New York is the legendary collaboration between the Tony Award-winning choreographer Garth Fagan, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Wynton Marsalis and celebrated sculptor Martin Puryear. Set to Marsalis’ melodic and haunting jazz score, Garth Fagan’s kinetic movement blends African and Caribbean dance with ballet and modern into spellbinding choreography that, according to The New York Times, “moves with urban bustle and pastoral lyricism toward a celebration of life.”
