L.A. Dance Project presents an evening of four choreographies at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, in the field of TranscenDanses. This program includes two creations from outstanding L.A. based choreographers, a revival of Kineasonata by Bella Lewitzky, and the return of Benjamin Millepied’s Hearts & Arrows. Choreographers Madeline Hollander and Jacob Jonas will both present new works commissioned for Generation LA, a festival of new dance works created for and performed by L.A. Dance Project. Madeline Hollander is a choreographer at the forefront of interdisciplinary collaboration. Her work was been featured in projects such as Director Jordan Peele’s most recent feature film Us and artist Urs Fischer’s robotic ballet entitled Chairs. Choreographer Jacob Jonas will present a new choreography set to the rich orchestration of Mexican-American percussionist Antonio Sánchez. In addition, L.A. Dance Project is thrilled to present the revival of Kinaesonata, a choreography from 1970 by dance-pioneer and legend Bella Lewitzky. The revival of Lewitzky’s Kinaesonata is accompanied by a newly commissioned sets and costumes from celebrated visual artist Charles Gaines. Also featured on the program is Benjamin Millepied’s critically acclaimed choreography Hearts & Arrows, an intricate dance set to the rousing String Quartet No. 3 (Mishima) by composer Philip Glass. Hearts & Arrows features lighting design by Roderick Murray and visual concept by contemporary artist Liam Gillick.
