According to The New Yorker, the New York City Ballet (NYCB) dancer and choreographer Silas Farley recently took a walk through The Met galleries "in the hope that the muse—Terpsichore, specifically—might strike." She did. The result is Songs from the Spirit, a MetLiveArts commission inspired by The Met collection. Farley brings fellow members of the NYCB—and the audience—on a journey led by traditional spirituals and new songs created by current inmates at San Quentin State Prison who, through the podcast Ear Hustle, contribute music for the performance, offering a nuanced view of an exiled population, and the irrepressible human drive to create.
