After a sold-out world premiere in New York City and a European debut in London, award-winning American ballerina Tiler Peck, will bring her critically acclaimed show, Turn It Out with Tiler Peck & Friends, to her home state of California this fall!
As dancer, choreographer, and making her directorial debut, New York City Ballet’s award-winning principal dancer has gone above and beyond to craft an exquisite evening of exceptional performances, with pieces that blend styles and invite imaginative musical collaboration. Described by The New York Times as “the ballerina who can stop time (and restart it, too),” Peck’s integration of disciplines is part of what makes this innovative program so entertaining and accessible.
Thousandth Orange choreographed by Tiler Peck, set to music by Caroline Shaw
Alonzo King’s Swift Arrow with music by Jason Moran
Time Spell choreographed by Michelle Dorrance, Jillian Meyers, and Tiler Peck with music by Aaron Marcellus and Penelope Wendtlandt
William Forsythe’s The Barre Project, Blake Works II with music by James Blake.
Though Peck’s storied career was already studded with pinnacle moments, Tiler’s audience has expanded exponentially over the past few years due to her viral “Turn It Out with Tiler” classes. The class, which Peck started on her Instagram to provide community during the pandemic, reached up to 15,000 daily participants on Instagram live and served in part as an inspiration for the Turn It Out with Tiler Peck & Friends tour. The opportunity to collaborate with fellow top-tier artists, celebrate the joy of live performance and continue to showcase the wide tapestry of art through dance has informed the electric production.
The cast is full of award-winning dancers including tap superstar and founder of Dorrance Dance, Michelle Dorrance, So You Think You Can Dance Season 14 winner, Lex Ishmoto, and LA native Jillian Meyers whose work includes La La Land, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, and Babylon. Tiler also recruited fellow New York City Ballet dancers India Bradley, Chun Wai Chan, Jovani Furlan, Christopher Grant, Roman Mejia, Mira Nadon, and Quinn Starner. Rounding out the cast includes American Ballet Theatre’s Brooklyn Mack and Dorrance Dance company member, Byron Tittle.
Tiler Peck is a stupendous mover. In her London debut, the New York City Ballet principal shows off the effervescent speed and musicality she’s known for, along with an eagerness for collaboration built around the joy of music, rhythm, athleticism and pure dance. There’s a great sense of artistic exchange and shared pleasure that’s a delight to be part of. -The Guardian

This program is a love letter to my craft as a dancer and the manifestation of my total freedom as an artist. I grew up doing all styles of dance and am grateful that I get to incorporate all of them alongside best-in-class multidisciplinary dancers in a show that will undeniably be more than what people are used to seeing at the ballet with tutus and tiaras! -Tiler Peck
