Love dance? Or maybe Pharrell Williams?

Now may be the time to take out a trial to Marquee, the performing arts streamer.

R&B/rap star Williams wrote the original score for 2016’s Rules of the Game, choreographed by Jonah Bokaer and visually designed by Daniel Arsham:

The Marquee Fall Dance Season is live! First up: Jonah Bokaer Choreography x Daniel Arsham x Pharrell Williams Rules of the Game.To watch and subscribe, visit: http://geni.us/marqueeChoreographer Jonah Bokaer’s precise and elegant movement aesthetic animates Daniel Arsham’s space-manipulating architectural environments in this evening of three works, celebrating a decade of collaboration between the two. The program leads with Bokaer’s masterful technique on full display in his signature solo RECESS (2010), followed by Why Patterns (2011), set to Morton Feldman’s eponymous 1978 score, in which four dancers play unpredictable games with 10,000 ping-pong balls.An original score by Pharrell Williams for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra sets the tone in Rules Of The Game (2016), a new work for eight dancers inspired by the absurdist play of the same name by Luigi Pirandello, and set in Arsham’s surreal multimedia environment.
