2015 was a busy year for Troy and Ellis, with several projects, including the release of San Fermin’s second album Jackrabbit and a critically acclaimed commission for a new work at New York City Ballet. Committed to continuing their collaboration while finding new directions, they engaged fashion art photographer Paul Maffi to create a series of character driven images. The extended series of images Paul provided took Troy and Ellis on a journey to extract a personal meaning for themselves and for the work ahead of them. The result is a series of seven songs and three interludes exploring a deep sense of introspection and connectedness. All seven of BalletCollective’s amazing dancers come together to perform this unique work.
