This piece- Lang's first full-length ballet and JLD's BAM debut- premiered at the 2014 Next Wave Festival.
“reliably sophisticated and achingly beautiful.”
“a major work from a thoughtful, exciting choreographer, a fine addition to the balletic canon of romantic mystery.”
“"The Wanderer" is more than a ballet - it's a culmination of plastic art, opera, and motion where no form overpowers the other. All media interface with ease, and they improve through collaboration.”
“Lang has created a true work of art.”
“the phenomenal cast of dancers...were beautiful, in command and yet not restrained. Lang did not wander; nor did her viewer(s). We were in wonder.”
“a work of high craftsmanship.”
