Why Watch Robbins + Peck

Jerome Robbins was a renowned dancer, director, producer and choreographer, and one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. A 2-time Academy Award winner, he as also a 5-time Tony Award winner and a recipient of the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. Robbins started his career as a dancer and joined the Ballet Theatre in 1940 and later went on to join the New York City Ballet. He was especially known for his performances in several of George Balanchine's ballets. His choreography was noted for its confluence of traditional ballet, with elements of jazz and modern styles.

Justin Peck is a dancer, director, and choreographer and the youngest Resident Choreographer of the New York City Ballet. A Tony Award-winner in 2018, he has quickly risen to become one of the greatest choreography talents of this generation. He has choreographed works for companies across America and the world, including the Miami City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet and the New York City Ballet. He has been praised for his ability to bring together various styles of ballet and has been hailed a virtuoso of the form.

The Show

The first performance is Robbins’ Dances at a Gathering. The most striking aspect of the ballet is that there are very few people on stage at the same time. Robbins captures the idea of the mutability of things, a crux of the Zen Buddhist philosophy. Set to Frederic Chopin’s music, Dances at a Gathering is considered to be the greatest work of Robbins, and it is easy to see why. The playful flirtation between the leading duo is captivating, and the movements wonderfully capture the ever-changing emotional state of humans.

Next up is Peck’s ballet, Everywhere We Go. The 42-minute performance includes 18 supporting dancers and 7 principal dancers, against an illuminated backdrop whose patterns keep changing. The lighting is top-notch, ensuring that the combination of brightness and shadows highlights the captivating performance. The first movement is both chaotic and jubilant, as the calming harmonies are interspersed with the thumps of drums. The score by Stevens is ominous, but his unusual beats or sounds adds an element of mystery to the music. The choreography and music perfectly complement each other, and the kaleidoscope of movements is guaranteed to take your breath away!
