The company makes its Joyce debut with Play "a masterful ballet" by Ib Andersen, "a deeply gifted choreographer" (Dance Magazine). Described by Andersen as a "seven-course meal," Play is an evening length work composed of seven ballets set to the rich music of Mozart, Schubert, Britten, and Stravinsky. With its style and mood changing from passionate to playful, from evocative to elegant, the piece virtually plays with "constant changes of tone and musical attentiveness" to reveal "remarkably skilled dance-making." The New York Times

Venue Description: An inexpensive dance theater located in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, inside the former Elgin 1940's movie house. Renowned companies such as Complexions, FOCUS DANCE, MOMIX, Parson, and many others make this their NYC stop.
