A New Ballet from Justin Peck for NYCB (DanceTabs).
Peck’s Year of the Rabbit had its première on Oct. 5, and seems to have had a wide success. It’s delightfully complex piece, with lots of moving parts. The corps is the star. Here‘s my review for DanceTabs.
And a short excerpt:
“What struck me most about the ballet was its sense of freedom. This was the opening salvo of an imagination unleashed. Compared with the ballet that preceded it, for example (Benjamin Millepied’s Two Hearts), it felt pleasingly uncalculated, like a voyage of discovery. At a time when young choreographers seem overly concerned with appearing weighty and stylishly relevant, Peck appears to be mainly interested in exploring the form.”
