Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, was spotted at New York’s venerable Joyce Theater to see postmodern dancer and choreographer Lucinda Childs’ 1979 piece, “Dance,” over the weekend.
The piece was created as a collaboration with composer Philip Glass and late artist Sol LeWitt.
A source told us that Ye, 44, arranged his tickets “the same day” as the performance and “brought along an entourage of 12, which included producer Swizz Beatz.”
Ye originally purchased two tickets in the afternoon, the source added, but then – at the last minute – “bought up the remaining seats in the house.”
We’re told Ye apparently “had to see” the show after seeing an ad and being taken aback by the dance, movement and film.
A spy told us, “Although he came a bit late and sat in the back, he loved the performance and stayed through to the end of the curtain call, offering hoots-and-hollers to the company and the legendary choreographer when she joined the dancers for a bow.”
The rapper – who just recently changed his name legally to Ye – was also seen around town this month in a bizarre prosthetic mask meeting former Trump fixer Michael Cohen for coffee.
The pair – as well as PR whiz Ronn Torossian and Israeli judo champ Or Sassoon – were spotted at Sant Ambroeus Coffee Bar at Loews Regency Hotel. Sources told us that mayoral candidate Eric Adams was also meant to meet the group, but could not make it because he was tied at a meeting in Midtown.
