L.A. DANCE PROJECT
Is Sanat bears witness to the birth of a world class contemporary Ballet Company, devoted to artistic experimentation. L.A Dance Project is a program of events founded by renowned choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied. Instead of creating a traditional company, Millepied formed an “art collective,” bringing together some of his longtime friends and associates including composer Nico Muhly, art consultant Matthieu Humery, producer Charles Fabius and film producer Dimitri Chamblas. L.A Dance Project\'s goal is to create new work and to revive seminal collaborations from the past and collaborate with writers, artists and arts institutions in Los Angeles. Programs are including full-length evenings in traditional theater venues as well as various modular performances in non-traditional environments. Praised by critics for stylishness and craft of his ballets, Millepied shows exceptional talent in staging complex movements with many bodies. He has produced as many as 130 shows and choreographic commissions from top-tier ballet troupes soon followed by Paris Opera Ballet, Russia\'s famed Mariinsky Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, among others. A highly sought-after choreographer, Millepied also leapt into the celebrity stratosphere when he started dating actress Natalie Portman, whom he met while working on the Darren Aronofsky movie “Black Swan.” In 2010, he was made Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture.
