You can find my review of opening night, which included a new pièce d’occasion by the French photographer and street artists JR (with some help from Peter Martins), here. And here’s a short excerpt:

“It was a classic case of opposites attract. Here was this kid from the streets, doing magic, sinuous moves in sneakers; she was a pretty girl in a white tutu, bourréeing and spinning like a sylph. As they filmed each other with their imaginary cameras, we saw giant projected images of their sweaty, anguished faces. Sneakers and pointe shoes, a love story.”
