In his 2013 work Paz de la Jolla, New York City Ballet dancer and Resident Choreographer Justin Peck has created an homage to his southern California upbringing. James Kuldelka’s The Man in Black is set to six songs performed by the late country and western giant Johnny Cash, and the ballet’s choreography re-configures several popular country and western dance styles. Alexander Ekman’s Cacti, which premiered with the National Ballet in 2016, is a multiform work that satirizes the ponderousness and silliness of some contemporary dance and the critical response to it.
