Benjamin Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project is headed to the LUMA Foundation in Arles, France for the foundation’s first-ever dance residency. The 3-year residency is taking place at the Parc des Ateliers, where Frank Gehry is building a new addition to the campus, slated for completion in 2018.

Arles is known for its photography festival, which is currently taking place; alongside the new residency, the LUMA Foundation is exhibiting over 8,000 photos from the archives of legendary photography Annie Leibovitz.

Creating a multi-disciplinary art viewing experience, starting tomorrow, patrons can get tickets to see both the Leibovitz exhibition, as well as a new film called How Did You Get There by Adrien Dantou, followed by two previews of Orpheus Highway and In Silence We Speak choreographed by Millepied.

The program runs until July 22. For more information, visit the LUMA Foundation's website here.
