Glass Pieces at New York City Ballet

This week, New York City Ballet will perform Jerome Robbins’ Glass Pieces on its “Founding Choreographers II” program. Named after the work’s composer (Philip Glass), Glass Pieces is memorable for its pulsating rhythms and urban streetscape created by a large corps of dancers. Georgina Pazcoguin and Adrian Danchig-Waring, a newly promoted soloist, discuss the three sections of the work in the above video. Last June I singled out Danchig-Waring in my review of the piece, which was performed as part of the Jerome Robbins Celebration, saying, “Percussive rhythms of Akhnaten were the focal point of the third section. My eyes were continually drawn to Adrian Danchig-Waring, the clear leader of the cluster of men who moved as a pack, stomping and making distinct changes in direction.”

NYCB’s Founding Choreographers II program will be performed on February 18, 21, and 22. Tickets can be ordered online or by calling 212.870.5570.
