Choreography by: Justin Peck
Music by: Sufjan Stevens, Orchestrated by Michael P. Atkinson
The epic Everywhere We Go features 25 dancers in a nine-part exploration of Sufjan Stevens' cinematic score, the indie-pop icon's first NYCB commission, with each section accented by a multi-layered and shifting geometric backdrop.
Featuring a commissioned score by American singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens, Everywhere We Go was NYCB Soloist Justin Peck’s sixth ballet for the Company. It was also Peck's second collaboration with Stevens, following 2012’s Year of the Rabbit; the nine-movement score was Stevens’ first commission from the Company. With costumes by former NYCB Principal Dancer Janie Taylor, sets by Brooklyn-based artist and architect Karl Jensen, and lighting by Peck’s frequent collaborator Brandon Stirling Baker, Everywhere We Go premiered at NYCB’s 2014 Spring Gala.
