A daring contemporary ensemble work, Lifecasting is characterized by its innovative sculptural quality, great sweep, and energy.
Douglas Lee, a two-time participant in the New York Choreographic Institute, created Lifecasting, his first work for NYCB, for the 2009 New Combinations Evening. The ballet title refers to a sculpture technique in which casts are taken from the human form. The ballet opens to the dissonant tones of Ryoji Ikeda’s music, and then continues to Steve Reich’s Triple Quartet.
