Music, dance, theater and opera will take place at the Frank Lloyd Wright Theater, featuring projects from Pharrell Williams, composer Missy Mazzoli and choreographer Kate Weare.

The series will begin with the Philadelphia Opera performing pieces from Mazzoli’s Breaking the Waves opera based on Lars von Trier’s 1996 movie.

Preview choreographer Jonah Bokaer and scenographer Daniel Arsham's largest collaboration will be a new multidisciplinary work for eight dancers featuring a score composed by Pharrell Williams and an exclusive recording by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra conducted by David Campbell. Bokaer discusses the collaboration and excerpts are performed before the New York premiere at BAM’s Next Wave Festival. The performance will take place on October 31.

Pharrell is no stranger to the art world.  In 2009, artist Takashi Murakami, Pharrell Williams and Jacob the Jeweler debuted Simple Things, 2008-2009, at Emmanuel Perrotin's booth at Miami Basel.

The sculpture is made of glass, acrylic, wood, LEDs, a bottle of Heinz ketchup, a bag of Doritos, a cupcake and a shoe by Williams' Billionaire Boys Club label. Williams commented: "It's made with 26,000 diamonds and gems....I wanted people to see the value of simple things with some of the staples of American culture."

It was rumored that a pair of collectors bought the piece for $2 million. Williams and Murakami also worked together on music videos for Pharrell's G I R L album.

One of the events representing theater is a performance of The Fundamentals by Erika Sheffer which has been commissioned by Steppenwolf and explores America’s corporate culture.
