I fall, I flow, I melt

JAN 12-20

I fall, I flow, I melt - US Premiere

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. Frequent L.A. Dance Project collaborator and Ermenegildo Zegna Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori will design costumes for the piece.

BELLA LEWITZKY REVIVAL

Born while her parents were members of the socialist Llano Del Rio Colony in 1916, Lewitzky became the star of the Lester Horton Dance Group, the first American interracial dance company, based in Los Angeles in the 1930’s and 40’s where she was the primary developer of the Horton technique.
