New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns is acclaimed as “a dancer who leaves everything she owns on the stage while realizing movement fully, all the way to her fingertips” (The New York Times). As the recipient of a Bessie Award for sustained achievement, Mearns has expanded notions about what it means to be a versatile dancer today.

In this Pillow-exclusive engagement, Mearns performs in multiple cross-genre collaborations including Pillow-commissioned No. 1, a duet with Honji Wang created under the artistic direction of Sébastien Ramirez of the French hip-hop duo Company Wang Ramirez; the world premiere of a new duet with postmodern dance’s Jodi Melnick, and others.
