Over the coming few weeks, we’ll be sharing interviews I’ve done recently with dancemakers from The Soraya’s 2023-24 season. The Soraya’s stage has been home to some of the most important dancers and choreographers living and working today. This season is no exception, including some return artists – Diavolo and Savion Glover among them.
Making a Soraya debut is phenom Tiler Peck. The California native is the toast of New York City, a prima ballerina for New York City Ballet, and now a producer and choreographer. Her new piece “Turn it Out with Tiler Peck and Friends” took London by storm a few months ago, and we secured a spot on its West Coast tour this fall, October 28 & 29, 2023. It’s four pieces of varied styles and techniques performed by a cast of all-star dancers. I spoke to Tiler from New York recently. She had so many things to share, that we couldn’t cut the video to be any shorter. Listen to all 8 minutes of her story – from dancer to producer, surviving injury, and “turning lemons to lemonade” during the pandemic.
We expect Tiler Peck and Friends to sell out in a jiffy. Here’s how to get your tickets now. Group discounts are available for dance studios and similar.
