Behind-the-Scenes of Garth Fagan's latest project


WXXI News was granted exclusive behind-the-scenes access to document Lighthouse/Lightning Rod, a project between Tony award-winning choreographer Garth Fagan and Grammy Award-wining musician and composer Wynton Marsalis. 

Fagan and Marsalis joined forces twenty years ago for Griot New York, and now they’re doing it again! 
Lighthouse/Lightning Rod was performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) on September 27, 2012. The concept and choreography were created by Fagan. The original music was composed and arranged by Marsalis.
