In the studio with Justin Peck — By Solène Souriau

Justin Peck’s ballet In Creases entered the repertoire of the Paris Opera Ballet last March. Today, he is about to present his first creation for the company at the Opéra Bastille called Entre Chien et Loup. With Francis Poulenc’s music and John Baldessari’s set designs, the choreographer creates a piece where softness and beauty mingle with anxiety and mystery. Soloist dancer and resident choreographer with the New York City Ballet, Justin Peck is on the bill with George Balanchine and shines a new light on the neoclassic language.
