Wave Hill - The Missing Element featuring The Beatbox House

WHEN
Wed, Jul 31, 20247:00PM – 8:00PM

WHERE
Great Lawn; Rain Site: Armor Hall

The Bronx-born art form of hip hop returns to Wave Hill’s garden setting for the closing event of our 2024 Sunset Wednesdays season! The Missing Element fuses together awe-inspiring street dancers from Krump, FlexN and Breaking communities with the virtuosic music-making of The Beatbox House. This work explores the universal elements of Earth, Wind, Fire, Water, and Space. Commissioned by Works & Process, The Missing Element is an immersive experience where street dancers and beatboxers utilize their abilities to embark on an adventure of sound and dance. Their mission is to work together to find The Missing Element.

All music and sound is 100% human-generated.

The Missing Element was commissioned by Works & Process and has been developed in Works & Process Bubble and LaunchPAD residencies at Kaatsbaan Cultural Park (2020 and 2021), made possible in part through the generous support of the Mellon Foundation and Doris Duke Charitable, and Catskill Mountain Foundation (2023). Past performances have taken place at the Guggenheim Museum, Guild Hall, Jacob’s Pillow Gala, Kaatsbaan Cultural Park, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Little Island, NY PopsUp with Amy Schumer, and very recently at the Guggenheim Bilbao’s 25th Anniversary. The project started its life in renowned Brooklyn nightclub House of Yes.
