One of the most exciting nights at Vail International Dance Festival is the NOW: Premieres evening of new dances. Last year’s festival included the first performance of the new duet by Brian Brooks and Wendy Whelan, which will see its world premiere at Jacob’s Pillow this coming week!

This year, audiences enjoyed another world premiere by Brian Brooks and new works by Paul Taylor, Larry Keigwin, Fang-Yi Sheu and Lil Buck. What’s more impressive is that many of these choreographers have created these works here at the festival. 

We followed Larry Keigwin and filmed him and the dancers creating his new piece, so keep a look out for our next film we are making about the process.
