Working Women, the spectacular one-night only concert from last summer's Gotham Dance Festival, returns to The Joyce for an expanded four-performance run that features pieces created by some of America’s most intriguing and beloved female choreographers. Presented by Gotham Arts Exchange, the program features new works and audience favorites by Kate Weare (The Light Has Not The Arms to Carry Us); Camille A. Brown (solo from Mr. Tol E. Rance); Carolyn Dorfman (Keystone); Monica Bill Barnes (Luster); and a special performance of Janis Brenner's Contents May Have Shifted, performed by Holly Farmer. Also on tap–world premieres by Loni Landon, Jane Comfort, and Carmen de Lavallade.

Acclaimed for his wit, ingenuity, and uncanny physical humor, Seán Curran began his career as a champion Irish step dancer, went on to become a leading dancer (and Bessie award winner) with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, and later became a STOMP! cast member. For its 15th Anniversary season, the company arrives at The Joyce with two New York City premieres. Fireweather, set to “The Mission of Virgil,” a Charles Wuorinen score for two pianos entitled and inspired by Dante’s Inferno, is informed both by the literary roots of the music and by visual art, ranging from the vibrant watercolors of William Blake to the grotesque engravings of Gustave Doré. The second premiere, Left Exit, examines spirituality, faith, and religion and includes recorded spoken word drawn from texts that illuminate the clash between secular reasoning and organized religion.

The two programs, with live music featured on both, also include three world premieres.

Performances include a new production of Graham’s erotic masterwork, Phaedra, along with other Greek-themed Graham classics such as Cave of the Heart and Night Journey.

Ice Hot

Tero Saarinen Company Mar 6–9 Wed 7:30pm Thu–Fri 8pm Sat 2pm & 8pm Dance Chat: Thu, Mar 7 Pre-Show: Thu, Mar 7

A Nordic Dance Festival Mar 6–17

For two weeks, Nordic contemporary dance at its best comes to The Joyce in this delightful festival focusing on Tero Saarinen Company, Danish Dance Theatre, and Carte Blanche, three of the hottest companies performing anywhere today.

Presented in cooperation with Ice Hot Nordic Dance Platform and the Kennedy Center, Washington, D.C.

Supported by The R. Britton Fisher and Family Gift for International Dance.

Six years after their triumphant Joyce debut, Finnish choreographer Tero Saarinen and his company come back to The Joyce with inventive contemporary choreography, poetic movement language, and masterful use of music and visuals, all of which create a profoundly moving experience. Saarinen himself will mark the centenary of Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring with his widely praised signature solo HUNT, hailed as one of the most significant re-interpretations of this timeless work. The program also includes the US premiere of Scheme of Things, an emotionally charged, technically demanding group work exploring the complexity of human relationships.


Danish Dance Theatre

Carte Blanche

Mar 11–13

Fri 8pm Sat 2pm & 8pm Sun 2pm & 7:30pm

Mon–Wed 7:30pm

Mar 15–17

Dance Chat: Tue, Mar 12

For Corps de Walk, co-creators Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar set their eyes on the corps de ballet who traditionally form the pale backdrop behind the prima ballerina. But in this work, beautifully executed by Carte Blanche, the Norwegian National Company of Contemporary Dance, Eyal and Behar rip off the tutus and force the dancers’ heels down to earth. They pulsate in a raw, organic unit that regularly breaks into military positions set to the music of Debussy, to mechanical outbursts of the German industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten’s, and to friendly passages from David Byrne’s warped backyard. With ice cool stares from the alternately beautiful and grotesque apparitions, Corps de Walk creates a visual and musical landscape of pounding beats.

Ice Hot continues with Danish Dance Theatre performing Love Songs, a sensual, evening-length piece by Britishborn, Artistic Director Tim Rushton (MBE – Member of the order of the British Empire), who has created an intimate portrait of love in a jazzy universe. The music, composed of cherished jazz classics from the good old days originally sung by legendary artists Ella, Louis, Billy, and Sarah, is reinterpreted by Denmark’s great jazz artist Caroline Henderson. A work that is both warm and intimate, Love Songs reveals the lifelong journey to find love as the piece moves from scenes of dingy realism to kitschy night club cruising.


DanceBrazil

Mar 19–24

Tue–Wed 7:30pm Thu–Fri 8pm Sat 2pm & 8pm Sun 2pm Dance Chat: Wed, Mar 20 Pre-Show: Thu, Mar 21

For over three decades, the infectious Afro-Brazilian rhythms, pinpoint precision, and sheer power of DanceBrazil performances have astonished audiences around the world. This spring, the company returns to The Joyce with a premiere by Artistic Director Jelon Vieira and Imfazwe, a powerful meditation on war, combat, and dance. As always, Capoeira, the mesmerizing martial art with an African beat, and live music drive the action onstage.

Dominic Walsh Dance Theater Thu, Aug 8 and Sat, Aug 10 at 8pm Launched by Dominic Walsh, a Houston Ballet principal dancer for over a decade, the company presents innovative works that captivate audiences with visually stunning performances. The program for its Joyce debut features Camille Claudel, based on the life of the sculptor of exceptional and unusual talent who influenced Auguste Rodin. This dance theater work is an homage to this extraordinary French artist whose fate was fascinating, inspiring, and tragic.

Company C Contemporary Ballet Fri, Aug 9 at 8pm and Sat, Aug 10 at 2pm Company C Contemporary Ballet, praised for its “thrilling…high velocity dancing” (San Francisco Chronicle), makes its Joyce debut with a program full of fresh, innovative choreography that embodies the athletic prowess, emotion, intelligence, and humor that have kept it at the forefront of Bay Area performing arts for over a decade. Under artistic director Charles Anderson, a former New York City Ballet dancer, the company will present a program featuring works commissioned for its 2013 season, including new works by Brian Reeder and Patrick Corbin, that will be performed for the first time in New York.


Aug 6–17 The Joyce has designed this ballet festival to recognize the many dancers and choreographers who are creating work outside the traditional large company milieu and are forming their own small companies. Featured are companies from across the US whose work represents a range of ballet styles, from neo classical to contemporary.

Whim W’Him Mon, Aug 12 and Tue, Aug 13 at 7:30pm Founded in 2009 by former Pacific Northwest Ballet Principal Olivier Wevers, Whim W’Him is a Seattle-based company that describes itself as both “entirely classic and entirely now.” For its Joyce debut, the company performs Flower Festival, a re-working of the pas de deux from August Bournonville’s 1842 ballet Flower Festival in Genzano, in which Wevers replaces the original male/female dancers and peasant costumes with two men in business suits. The result is neither mockery or parody, but a slightly funny and oddly touching transition of the old into the new. The program also includes Monster, a piece consisting of three duets that explore the inherent monstrosity of society, addiction, and relationships.

Satellite Ballet and Collective

Jessica Lang Dance

Wed, Aug 14 at 7:30pm and Thu, Aug 15 at 8pm

In each work, a group of seven artists, including emerging choreographer Troy Schumacher, multimedia artist Kevin Draper, post classical composer Nick Jaina, photographer Lora Roberts and Dramaturge Nathan Langston present an honest and compelling experience.

Having created over 75 works for ballet and modern companies in the last thirteen years, choreographer Jessica Lang’s own contemporary ballet company makes its Joyce debut with a diverse program showcasing Lang’s acclaimed talent for seamlessly incorporating striking design elements into her emotionally engaging work. Live music adds a rich layer to the first of two NY premieres, From Foreign Lands and People, an elegant, comical ballet set to Schumann’s Kinderszenen Opus 15, while i.n.k. incorporates visual artist Shinichi Maruyama’s video projections and an original score created from liquid sounds by Jakub Ciupinski.

Attending live dance performances can be habit– forming, so we recommend starting young by inviting children to the adult table. That’s why The Joyce created this series—family–oriented performances followed by a special opportunity to meet the artists. Tickets are $10 for kids, and if they see both family matinees, they automatically become Joyce Junior Members and save 40% on the price of their tickets—$10 reduced to $6. Kids (ages 6–14) must be accompanied by an adult.

This series of conversations between artists and audiences, moderated by dance scholars, writers, artists, and other experts in the field, provides an informal, but in-depth examination of issues shaping dance today.

Stay with us after the curtain goes down for these postperformance dialogues with choreographers, artistic directors, and/or company members. Dance Chat activities usually take place after Wednesday evening performances; see company descriptions for dates.
