Hearts & Arrows

Choreography by Benjamin Millepied

Hearts & Arrows premiered in 2014 and is part of Benjamin Millepied’s “Gems” trilogy, a collaboration between L.A. Dance Project and Van Cleef & Arpels. Hearts & Arrows, with costumes by company dancer Janie Taylor, is inspired by diamonds and the idea of light. The dancers’ impressive athleticism and musicality are amplified through Millepied’s masterful choreography. The New York Times described the work as “a propulsive, kinetic stream of movement…[that] offers a glowing display of Mr. Millepied’s craftsmanship — the way he keeps his eight dancers constantly moving through asymmetrical and contrapuntal patterns…Everything is unexpected, everything feels serendipitously right.”
