(84) Reid and Harriet on their Works & Process at the Guggenheim

Posted by on 03.19.2018

This week we welcome back costume designer duo, Reid Bartelme and Harriet Jung.  We first had them on the pod in 2016 in episode 21, where we talk with them about how they became interested in fashion, how they met each other, and about their work.  This time we met up with them in person back in January at the Guggenheim Museum, the site of their newest project.  We talk with them about what they have been up to since we last spoke, including their time as fellows at Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU, then we get a preview of their upcoming event as part of the Works & Process at the Guggenheim. On March 25th and 26th, the pair will be presenting new work  in collaboration with their favorite clients and choreographers, Lar Lubovitch, Pam Tanowitz, Jack Ferver, Gwen Welliver, and Burr Johnson. As part of the program Barteme and Jung will participate in a moderated discussion led by fashion icon Isaac Mizrahi on March 25 and New York City Ballet principal dancer Adrian Danchig-Waring on March 26. Dancers include Reid Bartelme, Maggie Cloud, Jack Ferver, Russell Janzen, Burr Johnson, Harriet Jung, and Stuart Singer with singer Tiffany Abban accompanied by pianist Patrick Gallagher.

  1. I am the source for Muchael Sean Breeden’s remark about the pale mint green color of Karinska’s tutu for the Sugarplum Fairy in the Balanchine “Nutcracker”. But I was wrong about its being derived from the 1892 original “Nutcracker” – whose costumes were designed by the remarkable Ivan Vzevolozhsky, the director of the Imperial Theatres and the man who brought Tschaikovsky and Petipa together. On checking, I find that Karinska’s choice of color seems much more original – based on (as Reid Bartelme suggests) the look of the coating of the some barley-sugar candies. For the original Sugarplum tutu, Vzevolozhsky designed a white tutu decorated with pale rose “sugar plums”. My apologies for having passed on an inaccuracy!
