I fall, I flow, I melt
I fall, I flow, I melt - US Premiere from Benjamin Millepied
We transforming 2245 for this US Premiere and full-evening work from L.A. Dance Project Artistic Director, Benjamin Millepied. Presented in the round, this intimate performance experience is the culmination of Millepied’s recent explorations into the depth and complexity of some of Johann Sebastian Bach’s most celebrated music. Featuring movements from his previous work, Bach Studies (Part 1), Millepied includes additional compositions from David Lang to further elevate techniques of counterpoint, fugue, and canon within his choreography.
Accompanying the ensemble of twelve dancers will be violinist, Etienne Gara, Artistic Director of L.A.’s Delirium Musicum. Gara will perform Bach’s Partita for Violin No. 2 in D Minor as well as sections from Mystery Sonatas by David Lang.

Jay Carlon, artistic director of dance company CARLON, pairs up with The Industry’s baritone / actor David Castillo and Grammy Award-winning composer Alex Wand to create an evening length dance theatre work in search of the Filipino-American narrative. Inspired by his upbringing, growing up competitive wrestling and the youngest of 12 to a Filipino Catholic, migrant-working family, Carlon’s new evening-length work FLEX will be an in-depth focus on colonization, obedience, resistance, and solidarity.
