Justin Peck, one of the new breed of young ballet choreographers and a members of the corps at New York City Ballet, will have the world premiere of his new work, The Enormous Room, at the Saratoga Arts Fest on Friday, June 10 at 7pm at the Skidmore College Dance Theater in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Below is the link for more information:
The Enormous Room, set to the music of Mendelssohn, will be performed by fellow New York City Ballet dancers Tess Reichlen, Sean Suozzi and Ask LaCour. The ballet represents the contrasting feeling of openness of Saratoga Springs as compared to the claustrophobic feeling of New York City, where New York City Ballet resides eleven months of the year. Returning to its summer home at Saratoga Performing Arts Center each summer is like a room welcoming the Company home.
If you are in the area or are looking to catch the latest work by this truly promising young choreographer, be sure to get your tickets. I'll be there.
Justin will also be premiering a new work in July at the Nantucket Atheneum Dance Festival, where Benjamin Millepied is the artistic director.
