Cinematographer and documentarian Jody Lee Lipes crafts an intimate, fly-on-the-wall documentary offering a rare peek into the highly-guarded world of professional ballet. The film shadows Justin Peck, the 25-year old choreographer of the New York City Ballet, as he undertakes the Herculean task of creating the company's 422nd original piece while simultaneously fulfilling his role as a Corps de Ballet member. Lipes chronicles Peck's creative process from its embryonic stages to its highly anticipated premiere, quietly observing as he balances a roster of musicians, designers, and dancers from this famed institution. Ballet 422 is a powerful celebration of the skill and endurance of Peck and his fellow NYCB dancers-as well as those who remain hidden in the wings.

This one-night only screening is presented by Grand Rapids Ballet and UICA. Don't miss Grand Rapids Ballet's contemporary dance series MOVEMEDIA coming to the Peter Martin Wege Theatre March 13-15 and April 16, 17 & 19. MOVEMEDIA features new works created by national and international choreographers. More information at grballet.com.
