Turn It Out With Tiler Peck & Friends
Award-winning New York City Ballet principal dancer Tiler Peck presents Turn It Out with Tiler Peck & Friends. With her personal touches on the evening, Peck has assembled many of today's most exciting dance artists for an innovative program.
Originally conceived for New York City Center's Artists at the Center series, the program includes Peck's own Thousandth Orange, set to live music by Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw, West Coast and San Francisco legend Alonzo King's pas de deux Swift Arrow, Time Spell - a collaboration between long-time friend and world class tap dancer Michelle Dorrance alongside Jillian Meyers.
The program closes with The Barre Project, Blake Works II. Originally created for film and hosted by Sadler's Wells Digital Stage, it was produced by CLI Studios with music by James Blake. The project marked the first creative partnership between Peck and choreographer William Forsythe and is now performed live.
