L.A. Dance Project's two-week run at the Joyce Theater opened May 3 with a program of mainly post-modern works by three female choreographers. Founded in 2012 under the artistic direction of former Paris Opera Director of Dance and New York City Ballet star Benjamin Millepied, the Los Angeles-based dance company celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Since its inception, the company has presented over 40 works, both new and restaged, from a diverse array of choreographers including Justin Peck, Merce Cunningham, Kyle Abraham, Ohad Naharin, and Martha Graham.
