L.A. Dance Project has been turning heads with its fresh, contemporary vision of dance and stylistically diverse repertory. Founded by Benjamin Millepied, who’s also known for choreographing and starring in the award-winning film Black Swan alongside his wife, Natalie Portman, brought the company into existence in 2012. Making its Miami debut, the L.A. Dance Project will showcase Chaconne (Part 1), a WORLD PREMIERE, by Millepied and Murder Ballades, a work choreographed by New York City Ballet’s Justin Peck. The New York Times describes Murder Ballades as being “loosely inspired by the tradition of American murder ballads—infusing its athletic, often cheery movement with a sinister undercurrent." The program is highlighted by bold musicality and dynamic movement. Experience innovative collaborations with influential composers, designers and visual artists.
