BWW 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.

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.
