The Balenciaga designer will be in New York later this month to see his creations put to use in final rehearsals for an original performance to be held Oct. 24 and 25 at the Guggenheim’s Peter B. Lewis Theater. Visual artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and composer Ari Benjamin Meyers have joined forces for a musical drama about endings, inspired by “Soylent Green,” the 1973 Charlton Heston science fiction thriller depicting a disturbing vision of New York City in 2022. The mixed-medium presentation will also feature Staten Island’s Richmond County Orchestra and photographs by Alex MacLean.
