Choreographer Benjamin Millepied’s LA Dance Project will make a sneak-peak debut in July with a performance in the galleries of the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Millepied is creating a 30-minute, site-specific duet, “Framework,” to a narrated soundtrack by Los Angeles artist Mark Bradford. The free performances, in conjunction with the MOCA show, “The Painting Factory: Abstraction after Warhol,” are scheduled for July 19, Aug. 2 and 9.
Bradford has two large paintings in the exhibition, “Untitled” (2011) and “Ghost and Stooges” (2011). “Framework” was inspired by Bradford’s works.
Millepied will dance with new LA Dance Project member Amanda Wells, a prominent dancer with Stephen Petronio Company. They will travel throughout the galleries with the audience following along, dancing on Rudolf Stingle’s art work “Untitled,” a white wall-to-wall carpeting.
