Reprising last season’s Here/Now Festival, this 21st-century program combines breakthrough works and recent premieres. Peck’s sneaker ballet, one of the most buzzed about ballets of 2017, and the latest from Ratmansky join two Wheeldon works: a contemplative pas de deux evoking an introspective mysticism and an ensemble work for four couples who wind their way through eerily melodious piano selections, including music made famous by Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut.

Location:
David H. Koch Theater
Running Time:
2 hr 11 min
