Description: 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. Launched by Dominic Walsh, a Houston Ballet principal dancer for over a decade, the company presents innovative works that entertain audiences with visual stunning performances. The program for its Joyce debut features Camille Claudel, inspired by the tragic life of the brilliant 19th century sculptor, and appropriately constructed from a movement vocabulary that speaks of an emotion or state of being captured and maintained in stillness for deeper observation and absorption.
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.
