There are four more chances to catch THE RUNAWAY, the 30-minute dance Kyle Abraham choreographed for City Ballet’s fashion gala last year.

Set to music by Nico Muhly, Jay-Z, James Blake, and Kanye West, THE RUNAWAY is part of the company’s winter season New Combinations program, and will be preceded by William Forsythe ’s Herman Schmerman, and a new dance by Justin Peck, Principia (music by Sufjan Stevens).

Scheduled dancers for THE RUNAWAY are Ashley Bouder, Sara Mearns, Georgina Pazcoguin, Peter Walker, Roman Mejia, Spartak Hoxha, Christopher Grant, and—a particular standout—Taylor Stanley.

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME

After months of festival praise and a recent gala screening at AFI Fest 2017, Luca Guadagnino’s CALL ME BY YOUR NAME has finally opened in cinemas.

Equal to Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight in the artistry of its portrayal—both devastating and edifying—of a teenager discovering his sexuality, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME features a superlative lead performance by Timothée Chalamet as young Elio, a live wire summering “somewhere in northern Italy” in the early 1980s.

The script—based on André Aciman’s 2007 novel—was written by James Ivory, and Sufjan Stevens wrote two new songs—”Mystery of Love” and “Visions of Gideon”—for the film.
