21st Century Choreography I

MAY 2, 11, 13 eve, 17, 18

Approximately 2 hr


Justin Peck’s fondness for putting sneakers on classical dancers returns with Partita, a dynamic ballet for eight dancers. The dance rests upon an unusual score, a Pulitzer Prize-winning a cappella composition by Caroline Shaw, as well as a vibrant but simple setting by Eva LeWitt, the daughter of acclaimed artist Sol LeWitt (one of whose works, in turn, inspired Shaw’s music). This program is rounded out by recent new works, fresh from their sold-out fall premieres, by choreographers Gianna Reisen, to a commissioned free jazz score by Solange Knowles, and Kyle Abraham, featuring an intoxicating series of electronic R&B songs by James Blake.
