NYC BALLET “Principia”
A series of promos for PRINCIPIA, a new ballet by Justin Peck with original music by Sufjan Stevens. Filmed at rehearsals a month prior to the premiere, the spots are an impressionistic document of the ballet taking shape. Photographed entirely on a Bolex H16 SBM camera on 16mm film. All speed effects and double-exposures created completely in-camera.

“The idea for a new ballet using highly jeweled costumes was started in Europe over fifteen years ago when Mr. George Balanchine and Mr. Claude Arpels were introduced but it was not until early 1966, after a visit by Mr. Balanchine to Van Cleef & Arpels’ Fifth Avenue Salons, that the idea of the ballet really began to grow. So impressed was Mr. Balanchine by the beauty of the jewels he saw there, that he decided to try to capture it forever. The jewel motif in the three ballets is carried through by Mme. Karinska’s costume designs with strong emphasis on jeweled decoration.”
- Lincoln Kirstein, 1967

NYC BALLET “Glass Pieces with Russell Janzen
As dancer Russell Janzen notes, Jerome Robbins' GLASS PIECES is an abstract ballet but it’s also rooted in the real world, especially the feeling of driving, pulsing undercurrents found just by walking through New York City.

Building on an already popular partnership, indie singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens will craft a new score for Peck’s Spring 2017 premiere, their third NYCB collaboration following Year of the Rabbit (2012) and Everywhere We Go (2014).
