Choreography by Benjamin Millepied

Created in 2006, Closer is an intensely sensuous pas de deux set to Philip Glass’ undulant and lyrical “Mad Rush.” Benjamin Millepied’s exquisitely fluid, and at moments melancholic, choreography deftly reels the audience into the couple’s voluptuous connection. The piece’s inventive partnering is upstaged only by the riveting magnetism that Millepied is able to conjure between two bodies.
