In Creases

Choreography by: Justin Peck

Music by: Philip Glass

Like a puzzle of shifting shapes and formations, Peck's first ballet for NYCB showcases his keen eye for manipulating bodies to form complex geometric structures and unique patterns. 



In Creases is the first work Justin Peck, a soloist with New York City Ballet, created for the Company. The ballet is set to Philip Glass’ "Four Movements for Two Pianos," and received its world premiere in July 2012 during NYCB’s annual summer residency at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in upstate New York. Peck has since created more than 10 works for NYCB, and was named the Company’s Resident Choreographer in 2014.
