Ballet Hawai‘i Presents L.A. Dance Project


Mar 16, 2019
07:30 PM until 09:30 PM


Ballet Hawai‘i announces the Honolulu premiere of L.A. Dance Project (LADP), a vibrant and unique contemporary dance company from Los Angeles that is quickly becoming one of the worlds’ most recognized performing arts brands thanks to the vision of artistic director Benjamin Millepied.


“LADP founder and choreographer, Benjamin Millepied, is a world-class choreographer, filmmaker and former dancer with New York City Ballet. His choreography is featured in Darren Aronofsky’s award-winning film Black Swan, in which he also starred,” said John Parkinson, Ballet Hawai‘i’s executive director. “Bringing a world-class production of this quality wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and the Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts through grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.”


Comprising of exceptional solo dancers, the company is based in L.A.’s Arts District when not touring internationally. The exhilarating program, presented for one-night-only on Saturday, Mar. 16 at Neal Blaisdell Concert Hall, features a range of repertory including “Bach Studies” and “Orpheus Highway” by Benjamin Millepied and “Duets” by Martha Graham.


“LADP combines modern American dance and a creative urgency deeply committed to our time,” noted Ballet Hawai‘i artistic director Pamela Taylor Tongg. “Their Honolulu program will be an exciting mix of dances. ‘Orpheus Highway’ by Millepied is a ballet performed in sneakers, in the tradition of Jerome Robbins, who was a mentor to Benjamin Millepied. The Martha Graham duets will be of historical significance, and Millepied’s “Bach Studies (Part)” will showcase his contemporary dance creativity.”
