Choreography by Benjamin Millepied
Orpheus Highway premiered in June 2017 at The Joyce Theater in New York. This ballet explores the tragic love story of its eponymous mythological protagonist through an intricate juxtaposition of film and live dance performance, directed and choreographed by Benjamin Millepied. Nine dancers on stage echo and riff against a commanding cinematic backdrop in which they also star as Steve Reich’s suspended and strident Triple Quartet propels the work toward its dramatic conclusion.
Premiere: June 14, 2017 at The Joyce Theatre in New York City, New York
L.A. Dance Project developed this work thanks to a Technical Residency Partnership with The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College
