JR's ballet works are a celebration of art and life. The project was initiated in 2014, when JR was invited by the New York City Ballet to create a large-scale installation in the hall of the theatre as part of its Art Series. Peter Martins proposed that JR create a choreographic piece for the company. JR responded to this artistic challenge by translating the story of his friend and director, Ladj Ly, during the 2005 French ghetto riots, into a ballet. The piece was entitled « Les Bosquets ».
