This assortment from the 2017 Here/Now Festival celebrates ballet today and what its future may hold. Dark sophistication and otherworldly movements join the latest from Peck and indie stalwart Sufjan Stevens, their third collaboration in five years. Concluding the program is Ratmansky’s epic abstraction of a comical 19th-century story ballet, a stylized series of witty and animated dances for seven featured performers and a large ensemble.

  • Neverwhere

    • Music by: Nico Muhly
    • Choreography by: Benjamin Millepied

    Dark and sophisticated, Neverwhere sets its three couples in an otherworldly landscape as they swirl and swoon through Drones and Viola by Millepied’s frequent musical collaborator Nico Muhly.

  • Mothership

    • Music by: Mason Bates
    • Choreography by: Nicolas Blanc

    Prepare for liftoff with four couples as they launch into spinning lifts, swiveling walks, and racing slides danced to Mason Bates’ electro-acoustic orchestral score of the same name.

  • The Decalogue

    • Music by: Sufjan Stevens (Comissioned by New York City Ballet)
    • Choreography by: Justin Peck

    Building on an already popular partnership, indie stalwart Stevens’ commissioned score for solo piano lays the groundwork for Peck’s 10-dancer ensemble ballet, their third NYCB collaboration following Year of the Rabbit (2012) and Everywhere We Go (2014).

  • Namouna, A Grand Divertissement

    • Music by: Édouard Lalo
    • Choreography by: Alexei Ratmansky

    A truly monumental work, Ratmansky abstracts Édouard Lalo's comical 19th-century story ballet into a stylized series of witty and animated dances for seven featured performers and a large ensemble.
