Part of BAMcinématek
Directed by Henry Joost & Jody Lee Lipes | 2010

With Tiler Peck, Brittany Pollack, Robert Fairchild

In 1958, Jerome Robbins’ now-famous ballet in sneakers became a smash hit when it was broadcast on The Ed Sullivan Show and toured around the world. Set to an evocative jazz score against abstract urban backdrops, the dance told the story of disaffected urban youth through movement that blended ballet, jazz, and ballroom dancing with Latin, African, and American rhythms, resulting in a powerfully expressive and altogether new contemporary style. In NY Export: Opus Jazz, Jody Lee Lipes (Ballet 422) and Henry Joost (Catfish) return Robbins’ choreography to the streets of New York for the first time since the movie version of West Side Story. This unique and compelling abstract narrative captures the majestic landscape of New York City as well the subtle beauty, energy, and sensuality of Robbins’ original dance work.
