Mr. Millepied's choreographic style his is own -- fleet, with the body often arrested in sudden still positions that draw the eye to the beauty of line in classical ballet. His partnering is inventive without being overly manipulative. He is highly musical and although the ballet is abstract, the gestures and groupings often suggest a social world, evoking thoughts of friendship, love, power, isolation, fear and hardship.
