Justin Peck's Murder Ballades is refreshingly supreme - saw it twice at Sadler's Wells last season in London .... and the second time that was ALL I saw. It was worth the price of any ticket alone. Wish more Peck would come to London.

L.A. Dance Project has acquired a 5 year lease on a rehearsal and performance space. No simple task in Los Angeles. It's a big step for the company.

'[Millepied] said that the raw space would be equipped with a full lighting plot and modular seating. “We’ll be able to create work and rehearse with lighting, which is a major luxury,” he said. He added that he planned to program multidisciplinary performances and events year-round, have classes and workshops, and offer the space to other artists and ensembles when the troupe is on tour.

“There is an amazing amount of talent in Los Angeles, but a lack of infrastructure, and rehearsal space is at a premium,” he said. “I’ve seen firsthand how expensive it is to self-produce, so I want to offer local artists residencies and performance opportunities.”'
