“…might be the coolest event of the season."
—Time Out New York
“…a once-in-a-lifetime marriage of colour, light, music and movement that will send you right out of your seat on a cloud of sheer performing bliss.”
—The Toronto Star

Ten of the country’s elite color guard teams—the flag-flipping, sequin-studded crème de la crème of the “sport of the arts”—sync steps with musical luminaries at Barclays Center for a bacchanalia of beats and sabre-spinning orchestrated by David Byrne. Each artist—Nelly Furtado, How To Dress Well, Devonté Hynes, Zola Jesus, Nico Muhly + Ira Glass, St. Vincent, tUnE-yArDs, Lucius, Ad-Rock + Money Mark, and Byrne himself—collaborates with an individual ensemble to provide a live original soundtrack to dazzling lockstep routines, bathed in the big-venue limelight.

Conceived by David Byrne
Commissioned by BAM and Luminato Festival (Toronto)
With support from WGI Sport of the Arts
