Inspired by Miami’s vibrant Wynwood Arts District, Heatscape audibly elicited “ooohhh” from the audience when it debuted. Tony Award-winning choreographer Justin Peck and celebrated visual artist Shepard Fairey beautifully merge ballet and guerilla street art in this stunning collaboration created for Miami City Ballet. Plus, “see the music” as Balanchine would say in his Duo Concertant, as the on-stage violinist and pianist perform Stravinsky’s high-spirited music, alongside the two dancers.
