Acclaimed for his wit, ingenuity, and uncanny physical humor, Sean 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 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 Dore. 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.
