STEPHEN MILLS PRESENTS…MASTERS OF DANCE
Feb. 16-18 | The Long Center
Choreography: Stephen Mills, Justin Peck, Pam Tanowitz
Music: Philip Glass, John Cage, Henry Cowell
Restlessness in “the city that never sleeps” is what makes New York the creative center and dance capital of the world. New York is where Stephen Mills got his start, and for his Masters of Dance, Mills is excited to offer works by two of the most in-demand dance makers in the world. New York City Ballet Soloist and Resident Choreographer Justin Peck makes his Central Texas debut. Peck, the focus of the recent documentary Ballet 422, presents his work In Creases, set to the hypnotic piano music of Philip Glass, which will be played live on stage. Additionally, Guggenheim Foundation Fellow and Bessie Award-winner Pam Tanowitz will unveil a thrilling and challenging world premiere dance work. Mills rounds out the evening with his own Kai created to the rhythmically exotic music of John Cage.
