BWW Review: NEW YORK CITY BALLET's THE DECALOGUEBWW Review: NEW YORK CITY BALLET's THE DECALOGUE
by Wesley Doucette - May 24, 2017

Justin Peck's newest work, 'The Decalogue,' was placed at the far end of a daunting program this past Thursday as part of New York City Ballet's expansive 'Here/Now' festival. Following Lynne Taylor-Corbett's resonate 'Chiaroscuro,' Jorma Elo's sublime 'Slice to Sharp,' and Peter Martins' transportive, if overlong, 'Stabat Mater,' the sting of anticlimax would have been difficult to avoid for even the most robust work. The evening's narrative was moving to an aesthetic statement, but riding these pieces was also a burden of archaic catharsis which 'The Decalogue' is not equipped to shoulder. However, if dislodged from the context of the program, Justin Peck's newest work represents his most mature excavation of dance form and gives hope that ballet can be not simply dressed up in new fashion, but have its soil tilled for invigorating innovation.

WELCOME Receives World Premiere at LaMaMa Moves! Dance FestivalWELCOME Receives World Premiere at LaMaMa Moves! Dance Festival
by BWW News Desk - May 11, 2017

When the 60 Pre K children at the University Settlement House on New York's Lower East Side built their own wall this past spring, its political message countered the one currently circulating through the halls of Congress.

Their colorful works of art, drawn on cardboard sections were then connected and transformed into an interactive set created by visual artist Ben Heller for "Welcome," a new work choreographed and directed by the 2016 Jerome Robbins Award-winning choreographer Stefanie Batten Bland, the creative brains and heart behind the project.
