Created by dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, L.A. Dance Project brings together dance, choreography, composing, producing and filmmaking.
The company will perform Winterbranch, a dark and tough performance where movement is extremely slow and controlled; and Millepied’s own Closer, which he describes as a “marathon for the two performers and is deeply intimate and revealing.”
Finally, a new work, a fast-moving, energetic piece will be performed with tight coordination required of the dancers.
De Trace brings a slice of big-city movement and style in the frenetic movements of Parkour, a practice bringing acrobatic leaps, rolls and jumps across urban landscapes – described as “urban ballet meets extreme sport.” Formed by Atlantans Danillo Kisser and Dylan Moore, Cameron Richardson joins them in this display.
On Oct. 6, the festival will present a Danish documentary on the subject, My Playground.
