Last summer at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Michelle Dorrance and her electrifying piece 1-2-3-4-5-6 opened Tiler Peck’s Ballet Now program with a bang, and Dorrance is back in town with a three-dance, three-night (plus matinee) stand at The Wallis.
Dorrance’s pieces from 2011–2012, Jungle Blues and Three to One, will open the shows, followed by her highly anticipated new work Myelination., a collaboration with Ephrat Asherie and Matthew West.
