BalletCollective Sneak Peek

October 9, 2014

New York City Ballet dancers, a Telluride backdrop and choreography by up-and-comer Troy Schumacher? Sounds like the makings of dance video goodness to us. BalletCollective just released a short film entitled “This Weather is Perfect,” previewing an except from Dear and Blackbirds, one of Schumacher’s pieces to premiere at NYU’s Skirball Center later this month. The video is beautiful—Ashley Laracey and Harrison Coll dance delicately and passionately against mountains, blue skies and sweeping fields. The pickup company will perform the entire piece, plus another premiere and a performance of The Impulse Wants Company October 29–30.
