“Addressing central questions about the genre of ballet—music, gender, body language, academic vocabulary—and without strain. His answers look both direct and unforced, experimental and refreshing.” The New York Times

Following their sold-out, critically acclaimed run at the Joyce Theater, BalletCollective arrives at the NYU Skirball Center featuring the two world premieres, along with The Impulse Wants Company—named one of 2013’s top ten moments in dance by chief dance critic Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times. Choreographer and director Troy Schumacher brings together a remarkable roster of collaborative artists, including indie-rock band San Fermin’s Ellis Ludwig-Leone, artist David Salle, writer Cynthia Zarin, designer Brandon Stirling Baker, and a thrilling company of dancers from the New York City Ballet.
