One of the most buzzed about premieres of 2017, The Times Are Racing is a sneaker ballet that sees its dancers in streetwear designed by Opening Ceremony, drawing inspiration from a variety of dance styles while matching Dan Deacon’s electronic score with youthful impulse and vigor.

Justin Peck’s The Times Are Racing is set to the last four tracks of Dan Deacon’s expansive 2012 album, America. The ballet for 20 dancers is Peck’s second collaboration with fashion designer Humberto Leon of Opening Ceremony, following New Blood, which premiered at NYCB’s 2015 Fall Gala. The lighting is by Peck’s frequent collaborator Brandon Stirling Baker.  —NYCB
