Les Ballet Afrik
Excerpt from New York is Burning

Omari Wiles and his company of talented artists blend West African and Afrobeat styles with voguing, house dance and ballroom in this joyful homage to the documentary Paris is Burning. Commissioned by Works & Process at the Guggenheim in 2019, this work mirrors the documentary in celebrating and helping to realize the aspirations of a diverse company of dancers yet again beset by new health, race and financial crises.

Kinding Sindaw
Legend of the Monkey and the Mermaid

Told through the flowing movements of pangalay dance and the pulsing gongs of a kulintang ensemble, this magical dance storytelling piece explores how an unlikely friendship reveals principles of symbiosis and biodiversity, and how ancestral wisdom can inform sustainability for the future.

Ballet Boy Productions
What Lies Beneath

In this contemporary ballet set to music by Tchaikovsky, four male dancers physically express the emotional desire to challenge the visual perception so many have of young Black and Brown men, and explore beyond what is expected.

Passion Fruit
Excerpt from Trapped

Developed during a Works & Process at the Guggenheim bubble residency, Trapped serves as an invitation to unfold, release and remove mental blocks by focusing on the stories of five women—Mai Lê Hô, Lauriane Ogay, Nubian Nene, Gyeun “Soo Boog” Jeong and Tatiana Desardouin—who reveal their pain and paths to joy through a blend of street and club dance styles.
