L.A. Dance Project 2017

Returning for its second year, the Luma Foundation is pleased to continue its partnership with L.A. Dance Project. This Los Angeles-based artist collective was founded in 2012 by choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied, along with composer Nico Muhly, art consultant Matthieu Humery, founding producer Charles Fabius, and composer Nicholas Britel.
L.A. Dance Project creates new work and revives seminal historic works and collaborations.

Their summer program includes How Did You Get There, a film by Adrien Dantou shot at the Parc des Ateliers in 2016 during L.A. Dance Project’s residency in Arles.
The film will be followed by two previews choreographed by Benjamin Millepied, Orpheus Highway and In Silence We Speak. Yag, a new work by luminary Ohad Naharin rounds out the program.

In September, the group will premiere a new collaboration with choreographer Noé Soulier. It will be accompanied by Closer, a new work by Benjamin Millepied, set to Phillip Glass’s Mad Rush for Piano. Finally, and based on last summer’s successes, they will reprise On the Other Side, with choreography by Benjamin Millepied, set design by Mark Bradford, costumes by Alessandro Sartori, and music by Phillip Glass.
