Two Pioneering Works and a Repertory Favorite

Two contemporary choreographers create their first main stage works for New York City Ballet on this forward-looking program. Andrea Miller, founder of the Brooklyn-based company GALLIM and the first choreographer to be named artist-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, has emerged as one of the most sought-after dancemakers working today. Her piece will feature a commissioned score by Colombian-Canadian singer/songwriter Lido Pimienta, who will also perform. Choreographer and educator Sidra Bell’s work has been acclaimed as “brainy, exuberant and audacious,” establishing a high international profile for the founder of Sidra Bell Dance New York and the award-winning MODULE Laboratory; Bell’s world premiere will include music by American composers Nicholas Britell and Dosia McKay, as well as British composer Oliver Davis. Their adventurous choreography reflects the inquisitive ethos of Balanchine, whose zesty paean to the Wild West of popular myth, Western Symphony, concludes the evening on an effervescent note.
