Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels and NYU Skirball present an evening of works from the French dance collective (LA)HORDE and the Ballet national de Marseille, choreographed by Lucinda Childs, Lasseindra Ninja, and (LA)HORDE. Tempo Vicino, Tik Tok Jazz, Mood, Weather is Sweet and Concerto are set to an eclectic mix of music from John Adams, Philip Glass, Janet Jackson, Boddi Satva and others.
(LA)HORDE leads the Ballet National through varied narration and redesigns the scope of a seamless dance, from the most structured to the most passionate performance. Over the course of the same evening, the dancers will present a range of performances, from the structured choreography of Lucinda Childs to the trailblazing style of Lasseindra Ninja, an icon in the queer ballroom community. In the (LA)HORDE universe, sensuality and diffracted virtual movement will come face to face with choreographic composition.
Founded by Roland Petit in 1972 and granted Centre Chorégraphique National status in 1984, the Ballet national de Marseille is made up of 22 dancers hailing from 16 different countries. The dance collective (LA)HORDE has been at the head of the BNM since 2019. Through films and live performances, as well as choreographic creations, (LA)HORDE explores the political impact of dance and maps out the choreographic contours of popular uprisings, whether mass movements or isolated campaigns, spanning the dance spectrum from raves to folkloric dances, not to mention jumpstyle. ballet-de-marseille.com
(LA)HORDE’S performances are part of the Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels Festival in New York.
ABOUT DANCE REFLECTIONS BY VAN CLEEF & ARPELS
Profoundly attached to the world of dance since its origins, the High Jewelry Maison strengthens its commitment with Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels. Guided by the values of creation, transmission and education, this initiative aims to support artists and institutions in presenting choreographic heritage, while also promoting new productions. Since its launch in 2020, it has promoted numerous dance companies for their creations as well as the presentation of multiple performances around the world. The program is complemented each year by major events, including the Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels Festival, whose first edition took place in London in March 2022.
