On the Other Side

Choreography by Benjamin Millepied

On the Other Side premiered in 2016 and is the third installment of Benjamin Millepied’s “Gems” trilogy, a collaboration between L.A. Dance Project and Van Cleef & Arpels. On the Other Side, inspired by emeralds, is set to a suite of piano études by Philip Glass with jewel-tone velvet costumes by designer Alessandro Sartori and a remarkable set by Los Angeles artist Mark Bradford. The piece’s eight dancers ebb and flow naturally between ensemble dancing, pas de deux, solos, and groups of three or four, sustaining Millepied’s high lyricism and emotional momentum through to the ballet’s pensive conclusion.

43 Minutes

Premiere: June 24th, 2016 at Sadler's Wells in London, United Kingdom

Commissioned by Van Cleef & Arpels.
