Caleb Teicher & Company returns to the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to present some of the freshest and finest voices in the international Lindy Hop community. In this new production, the company will bring stars of swing dance together for virtuosic choreography, brilliant improvisation, humor and heart. Some days before the performances, Caleb Teicher and those dancers will co-create the contents of this program while a collaborative residency in Bilbao.
Works & Process at the Guggenheim—made possible this time thanks to the Ford Foundation, with the assistance of the Institute of International Education’s Global Travel and Learning Fund and Stephen Kroll Reidy presents a special event with New Yorker Caleb Teicher and eleven of the best swing dancers in the world.
