I spoke with Justin in August, before he began working with the company on “In the Year of the Rabbit,” which will première on Oct. 5. Here is a link to the interview.
And here is a short excerpt:
“Usually the corps supports the principals, but in Glass Pieces it’s the principals who support the corps. The corps is the real heart of that work. It’s something I want to incorporate into Year of the Rabbit. I want to create a sense of equality between the corps and the principal dancers. I’m interested in breaking up that fragmented way of presenting dance. I want to create a more seamless environment. And I want to play with transitions a lot.”
