Wynton Marsalis’s Spaces combines modern dance with big band jazz in a playful and wildly entertaining exploration of the animal kingdom. Performed for the first time (to sold-out crowds) in 2016, Wynton Marsalis’ new dance suite for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra is visually captivating. Marsalis and the orchestra are joined by the Astaire Award winning tapper Jared Grimes and the ground breaking ‘jooker’ Lil Buck, leaping, sliding, flipping, and tap dancing across the stage. Each of Spaces’ ten movements corresponds to a different animal, from “King Lion” to “Bees, Bees, Bees,” offering a dazzling array of sights and sounds that express the diversity, humor, and quirky majesty found in nature. The same two singular dance geniuses from the Spaces premiere—Lil Buck and Jared Grimes—reprise their roles, leaping, sliding, flipping, and tap dancing across the stage.
