Dan Deacon's "The USA" suite from his 2012 album America is going to be used by the New York City Ballet as part of their "New Combinations" program they'll perform seven times this season. As choreographed by the acclaimed Justin Peck, the performance will have "his dancers trading their pointe shoes in for sneakers." Performances happen at David H. Koch Theater on January 26 & 28, February 1, 2 & 4, and then again on May 5 & 9. Tickets are on sale and you can listen to Dan's "The USA" suite below.
As mentioned, Dan is also working on string arrangements for Sigur Ros' upcoming Los Angeles shows.
