The Ritual is a new movement of a larger work created by American Ballet Theatre soloist Gabe Stone Shayer. Set to Góða Tungl by Samaris and performed by Shayer and ABT Principal Dancer Cassandra Trenary, the work explores the familiar places we call home. Filmed on the Lincoln Center campus in September 2020, The Ritual premieres digitally on Sunday, December 13 at 7:30 pm ET.

The Ritual is presented as part of Lincoln Center at Home and was created and filmed under strict COVID-19 safety protocols.
