After a sold out opening weekend, L.A. Dance Project continues to welcome audiences to its new home for LIVE FROM 2245, a series of performances in downtown Los Angeles.
The L.A. Dance Project–company-in-residence at The Wallis for 2017-2018—is tripling down for its fall season, with three Los Angeles premieres of work by choreographer and artistic director Benjamin Millepied: IN SILENCE WE SPEAK and ORPHEUS HIGHWAY, both from 2017, and CLOSER, a 2006 piece with music by Philip Glass.
In addition, the company will dance the U.S. premiere Noé Soulier’s SECOND QUARTET, which features music by the choreographer and Flemish DJ Tom De Cock.
L.A. DANCE PROJECT, Thursday through Saturday, November 2–4, at 7:30 pm.
THE WALLIS, 9390 Santa Monica Boulevard, Beverly Hills.
Current company members include Aaron Carr, David Adrian Freeland, Jr., Kaitlyn Gilliland, Axel Ibot, Daisy Jacobson, Nathan Makolandra, Francisco Mungamba, Rachelle Rafailedes, Janie Taylor, Miranda Wattier, and Patricia Zhou.
