İş Sanat to welcome Millepied’s project
The L.A. Dance Project will take the stage at İş Sanat. AA photoİş Sanat will be hosting L.A. Dance Project, which was founded by Benjamin Millepied, on May 10. L.A. Dance Project is a program of events started by renowned choreographer and dancer Millepied.
Instead of creating a traditional company, Millepied formed an “art collective,” bringing together some of his longtime friends and associates including composer Nico Muhly, art consultant Matthieu Humery, producer Charles Fabius and film producer Dimitri Chamblas. L.A. Dance Project’s goal is to create new work and to revive seminal collaborations from the past and collaborate with writers, artists and arts institutions in Los Angeles. Programs are including full-length evenings in traditional theater venues as well as various modular performances in nontraditional environments.
Praised by critics for the stylishness and craft of his ballets, Millepied shows exceptional talent in staging complex movements with many bodies.
He has produced as many as 130 shows and choreographic commissions from top-tier ballet troupes soon followed by Paris Opera Ballet, Russia’s famed Mariinsky Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, among others. Millepied also worked at Darren Arofonsky movie ‘‘Black Swan.’’
