Founded as a collective two years ago by newly appointed Paris Opera Ballet director and former New York City Ballet principal Benjamin Millepied[1]—along with composer Nico Muhly, founding producer Charles Fabius, and others—the ambitious L.A. Dance Project has already turned heads with its fresh, contemporary vision of dance and stylistically diverse repertory.

For its much-anticipated New York debut, the company presents three pieces: Millepied’s own Reflections, an elegant series of pas de deux and group dances, set against bold graphics by Barbara Kruger and scored by David Lang; rising choreographer and New York City Ballet dancer Justin Peck’s Murder Ballades, a vivacious work in the spirit of Jerome Robbins, with a visual concept by artist Sterling Ruby and music by Bryce Dessner, performed live by eighth blackbird; and William Forsythe’s Quintett, a tender, elegiac piece for five dancers, created by Forsythe as a love letter to his late wife.

Venue Description: A multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, offering theater, dance, music, opera, film, and more from emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
